Short Term Accommodation & Respite

The Disability Trust provides quality short term accommodation for people with disabilities to take an enjoyable break from their usual home environment. We have a diverse range of quality short term accommodation options available to people around NSW and the ACT. All our short term accommodation is focused on providing a fun break in a safe and supervised environment supported by friendly and well trained staff. Our breaks offer individually tailored opportunities to develop skills as well as participate in fun activities or enjoy community outings.

The Disability Trust operates the following fully-staffed, welcoming and accessible respite homes providing wonderful opportunities for people with disabilities to have enjoyable out-of-home break: 

  • Parkside at Dapto is a fully accessible, purpose-built four-bedroom house. 
  • Emma Ruby House located in Cook in the ACT is specially designed to cater for younger  people with disabilities. It’s fully accessible and is very conveniently located near shops and a park providing excellent access to a range of activities. 
  • Hughes House is located in the suburb of Hughes in the ACT and caters for adults over 18. Also fully accessible, Hughes has been purpose built for people with disabilities and has a number of very comfortable living areas. 
  • Willow in Wollongong is nestled away off the main streets, surrounded by trees and quiet spaces to explore outside. 
  • Mountview is a five-bedroom home located in Balgownie in Wollongong. The house is well located in a private setting. It specialises in providing stays for adults with higher care requirements.

"Respite through The Trust provides me with time to stop and catch my breath. It gives Kiara time to grow as an individual and gain valuable life skills. I am content knowing Kiara is safe, happy and well cared for."
