Multicap Tasmania is supporting families through the provision of alternative support options

Multicap Tasmania’s short term accommodation options provide alternative support options for a person with disability and opportunities for new or different experiences.


We provide short term accommodation options for both children and adults with disability.

Multicap Tasmania provides several short term accommodation options, from support in your home, to short term accommodation within a purpose built house and from a few hours a day, overnight, or for several weeks.

Short Term Accommodation

Short Term Accommodation offers an environment for people with disability to stay and take a break. It can be used for a planned rest or emergency accommodation, with stays ranging from overnight to longer periods of time.

Short Term Accommodation stays may be regular or occasional to meet individual needs.

Multicap Tasmania’s Short Term Accommodation facilities provide a comfortable and welcoming environment in purpose built and accessible premises. Individuals have the opportunity to meet and socialise with others of similar age and have access to staff qualified in the specific support of people with disability.

Multicap Tasmania provides Short Term Accommodation services in Burnie, Ulverstone, Devonport and Launceston.
Recreational Short Term Accommodation

Multicap Tasmania’s recreational services provide a broad range of activities to people of all ages. Activities can be fun, adventurous or relaxing. They can be group activities or they can support individual goals and pursuits. They may be day activities, a weekend camp, a week away or even longer.

Recreational activities are great for increasing community participation, building social networks and also provide carers with rest time, knowing their loved one is enjoying a great social experience.
