Murphy House

Building on the success of our disability services across Victoria, SASS has opened a 22-bed accommodation facility in Bendigo.

Murphy House located at 5-7 Murphy Street, Bendigo provides short and medium term respite for participants requiring 24/7 care utilising funding from their NDIS plans. Murphy House is a registered Supported Residential Service (SRS) with the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing and we provide longer-term SRS options for participants who need a safe and secure place without intensive supports.

Our NDIS respite rooms and long-term SRS rooms are open and we are taking heaps of bookings. Get in quick!

Please contact to book an appointment or to obtain a referral form. 


What is STA?

Under the NDIS, STA replaces what used to be called respite for people with a disability.

STA is a support where someone with a disability has a short stay away from their home. This gives you the chance to try new things, make friends and learn skills. It also gives your family or carers a short break from their caring role.

What is MTA?

Medium-Term Accommodation is designed to assist participant's with a disability as a transitional arrangement whilst they await more permanent housing options. 

MTA is funded under NDIS funding and covers accommodation only. Participants with support needs can negotiate this on an as needs basis.


What is SRS?

Supported residential services (SRS) provide accommodation and support to individuals who require assistance with daily living activities. These facilities are available for people who have difficulties in managing their lives independently, such as the elderly, people with disabilities, and those who need rehabilitation after an injury.


SRS's play a vital role in providing long-term accommodation and care for vulnerable individuals who require additional support.

Murphy House received approval to operate as a registered SRS under the Supported Residential Services (Private Operators) Act 2010 in April 2023.

What support will I be provided?

Our self-contained rooms are well-equipped for people with disabilities.

Our wonderful disability support staff are always on hand to ensure all your support needs are achieved. 

Our services include:

  • Personal care such as showering and dressing

How long can I stay?

It’s up to you!

Your funding in your NDIS plan may allow for up to 28-days a year in STA or 90 continual days for MTA. SRS accommodation can be for as little or as long as you like.

So, depending on your package you could stay overnight, for a weekend, or for a holiday.
