Allowah can also provide respite for some children. Respite provides planned short term, time-limited breaks for families and other unpaid carers of children and young people with a disability.
Allowah has Stage One ADHC Supplier Directory approval. Children with existing individual respite funding from FACS can choose Allowah as their provider and Allowah can be given an ‘out of guidelines’ approval from the relevant FACS District Director to provide that particular service type to that individual. Applications will need to come through FACS on an individual basis.
Allowah is now a registered NDIS provider of Short Term Accommodation. Find out more at Allowah Disability Support Services
Parents may also choose to pay for respite when funding is not available.
