Life is all about living new experiences and creating memories… that’s why we’re thrilled to launch our new Mybreak program, creating unforgettable short-term holiday experiences, tailored to you!
What is Mybreak all about?
In a nutshell, as a participant you get to enjoy a short holiday break with likeminded friends in a beautiful location.
You and two other participants will experience a fun, adventurous (or relaxing) getaway with the full support of a qualified Myhorizon staff member.
How are your breaks funded?
Although holidays themselves aren’t technically funded by the NDIS, the supports involved are. The good news is, you are able to utilise your Short Term Accommodation (STA) funding from your NDIS Core Supports to pay for your accommodation, and food.
As a unique feature of Mybreak, your local transport is also covered and your STA funding will only be charged for the time you are on your break (not 24 hour blocks like most other providers), leaving you saved funds towards your next break with us. Your only out-of-pocket expense are any activities you choose to participate in while on your mini holiday, just like you would do any other time.
My Mini Break
Enjoy an overnight stay at our purpose-built residence with our short-term accommodation service.
What is Short Term Accommodation?
Short Term Accommodation is a service where people with a disability have a short stay away from their home. Take this time to try new things and enjoy fun activities whilst learning new skills.
Where will I stay?
You will be staying in our spacious Sussex Street STA Retreat located in Alexandra Hills. Features include 4 guest rooms, spacious living areas, a selection of activities and delicious meals. With easy access to many local restaurants and attractions, the location is ideal to make the most of your time during this short break.
