As part of the Intake process, we will collaborate with the participant to ascertain what length of stay will best meet their needs (short and/or long-term goals). Once decided, a Service Agreement will be issued that will be signed by The Banyans and the NDIS participant. The Service Agreement outlines the length of accommodation that will be provided and the price of that stay. If during the guest’s stay, they wish to extend their Short Term Accommodation, and there are sufficient funds in their plan, another Service Agreement will be provided for the additional accommodation and require the participant to approve.

These services may be paid for via the participants Core or Capacity supports. Please speak with our Intake Team on 1300 226 926 for more information about Residential Respite Programs.
