Short Term Accommodation*

Welcome to Bayley Stays, our short term accommodation service.

Bayley House has two specifically designed Short Term Accommodation (STA) houses that can each accommodate five guests.

You may require full support from our staff or you might be wanting to build your independence and we are able to provide options that will be tailored to you.

Choose your Bayley Stay

A Bayley Stay is your home away from home where you will be supported by our trained staff to live independently, learn skills and meet new friends.

When you are our guest, you will be staying in one of our purpose-built homes and enjoy new friendships and experiences. You may choose to have time during the week, weekends or during holiday periods. We will work with you to select the best dates for your stay.

If you need more information, we will go through the Bayley House Short Term eligibility criteria and discuss your support needs to ensure they met. We will support you through the paperwork process and explain the costs and funding.

Bayley Stays Activities

Our STA activity weekends provide the perfect opportunity for you to try something new in a supported, safe way. Why not buddy up with your friends and book a weekend together?
