STA provides an opportunity for people to socialize with others as a step towards living independently or in supported accommodation. It is also used for families who are planning a holiday or who need to attend to personal business.

Crisis and Emergency Short Term Accommodation

In addition to planned short term accommodation, Caring Hearts offers temporary accommodation to help families in crisis or emergency situations. Urgency, compatibility and our ability to provide adequate support to meet people’s needs are all factors we consider when short term accommodation is requested.


Anyone with an intellectual disability may be eligible to access the Short Term Accommodation Services at Caring Hearts, which can be provided based via approved funding or on a fee-for-service basis
