Short Term Accommodation (STA) replaces what used to be known as respite and provides people with a disability the opportunity to have some time away from home and for their families and carers to have a break.
Our Pottsville Short Term Accommodation House is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and is beautiful blend of residential and coastal living. Compliant with Disability Service Standards, it is suitable for people of all support needs.
Bring your Beach Getaway to Life
Escape to a home away from home just minutes away from one of the Tweed Coast’s most beautiful beaches. Pottsville is a coastal town in the Northern Rivers of NSW, serviced by a small shopping centre with takeaway food, award winning restaurants, beachside hotel, supermarkets and surf and fishing supplies. The many creeks and estuaries around Pottsville are great for canoeing, fishing and swimming. Visit the Beachside Markets on the first and third Sunday of each month for local produce and crafts. Pottsville Botanical Gardens has beautiful walks that wind through natural bushland and has so many picturesque spots to enjoy a picnic or BBQ.
Use your NDIS Core Funding
The NDIA have recently introduced a policy that now allows all customers to use their CORE funding for Short Term Accommodation (STA). Previously participants required a specific allocation in their NDIS plans to be able to use their funds for all-inclusive STA respite getaways.
Not anymore. Now, if you have any spare CORE funds, you can use this at any time to enjoy a weekend getaway, or a weekday day or two stay at our Pottsville House. Examples of NDIS Goals for Short Term Accommodation Include:
- I would like to be supported to have a holiday
- I would like to increase my independence
- I would like to make new friends and increase my social networks
- I would like time away from my family
Pottsville House is located in the exclusive “Black Rocks” Estate, one of the premier beachside residential estates in the Tweed area. Perfectly positioned to enjoy the essence of the Pottsville Beach lifestyle, the walking and cycle tracks along the creek to the beach are flat and wheel chair friendly.
A short ride in our accessible bus will take you into town where you will discover the Pottsville Tavern, local shops, award winning restaurants and cafes.
