Unit: Hour


Tailored support facilitating independence in self-care during short-term stays on Sundays.

Service Details:

This NDIS support item focuses on aiding participants with self-care routines within a Short-Term Accommodation (STA) environment, exclusively on Sundays. Qualified personnel assist with daily activities like bathing, dressing, and meal preparation. This service is especially designed for respite periods and is charged at a higher rate given the weekend context. Support is individualised, respecting the participant's pace and preferences while fostering autonomy.

Participant Outcomes:

Participants benefit from enhanced life skills fostering their autonomy and self-esteem. The assistance provided aims to improve independence in daily activities while ensuring safety and well-being. It serves to promote adjustment to an STA setting, reinforcing the ability to manage self-care with confidence. This further prepares participants for long-term independent living.

Impact Statement:

This service markedly improves participants' self-sufficiency, enriching their quality of life during STA stays on Sundays.

Providers can only claim from a participant’s plan for a Short Notice Cancellation of the delivery of a support item to the participant if all of the following conditions are met:

  • The NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits indicates that providers can claim for Short Notice Cancellations in respect of that support item; and
  • The proposed charges for the activities comply with the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits; and
  • The provider has the agreement of the participant in advance (that is, the service agreement between the participant and provider should specify that Short Notice Cancellations can be
    claimed); and
  • The provider was not able to find alternative billable work for the relevant worker and are required to pay the worker for the time that would have been spent providing the support.

Claims for a short notice cancellation should be made using the same support item as would have been used if the support had been delivered, using the “Cancellation” option in the myplace portal.

There is no hard limit on the number of short notice cancellations (or no shows) for which a provider can claim in respect of a participant. However, providers have a duty of care to their participants and if a participant has an unusual number of cancellations, then the provider should seek to understand why they are occurring.

The NDIA will monitor claims for cancellations and may contact providers who have a participant with an unusual number of cancellations.
