Why Choose an Empowered NDIS Holiday?

Since 2018, we have done countless NDIS holidays for our participants. Each of our holidays has been a truly memorable experience for everyone involved. When we talk about matching participants – we mean it. Each Participant is matched based on suitability. We want your holiday to be a trip to remember!

During our initial meeting, we will listen to your interests and discuss some possible activities and locations you would like to visit. We will gather all the necessary information, such as your support requirements, any medication that needs to be administered and how you want your eggs cooked in the morning.

Nervous about going away with someone you’ve never met? That’s okay to break the ice; we will organise a meet and greet, so the first time you meet the Support Worker isn’t on the way to the airport. Your about to spend a couple of days together, so we want to make sure you and Support Worker are comfortable working together!

We will have an organised itinerary during the trip, so you know exactly what is happening and on which day. Don’t forget to keep an eye on your mailbox post-holiday, and you’ll receive a photo book filled with images from all the memorable moments from the trip.

If this sounds good to you, contact our NDIS holiday’s team for more information.

 

“Empowered Holidays are like no other. They are tailor-made to
suit the participant’s needs, interests and abilities. This includes finding the perfect destination, suitable accommodation, and planning incredible experiences”.

How are holidays funded?

We often get asked by participants and stakeholders how are holidays are funded under the NDIS. Technically under the NDIS, holidays are not funded, but the supports that underpin them are. These types of supports fall under Short Term Accomodation formally known as Respite.  

The NDIS price guide defines the short term accommodation line item as “Integrated support for self-care, accommodation, food & activities in a centre or group residence for short periods.”. This line item can be used flexibly over the period of 24 hours to provide accommodation, food & negotiated activities over a short period of time. A portion of that can funding can be used towards a hotel or an Airbnb, activities such as going to a concert or a dolphin cruise.

 Funding for short term accommodation falls under the Core budget, which can be used for a variety of thingsas they meet the reasonable & necessary criteria.
