Arafmi is a registered NDIS provider offer a range of accommodation options and support for people with a psychosocial disability, situated across South East Queensland.
- Short-Term Accommodation
- Long-Term Accommodation / Independent Supported Living
- Emergency Respite
Our Arafmi Houses allow NDIS participants who have access to core funding to experience time away from home in a safe and supportive environment with access to staff throughout the stay. We offer flexible short-term accommodation arrangements ranging from a week-long holiday, a weekend away each month, an overnight stay or a few hours break each week.
We freshly prepare evening meals and lunches for guests staying at our houses. Guests absolutely love our dinner menus, which boast a wide variety of dishes that change from week to week and season to season.
Occasionally we offer a range of social, recreational and leisure activities which help to encourage inclusion in the community, and provide participants with an opportunity to engage in activities that may help them work towards their goals. Speak to our team to see what’s available or to discuss adding any extra activities or outings.

Our warm and open Toowoomba Arafmi house is located in the quiet and friendly suburb of Rangeville. Unlike the other Arafmi Houses, Toowoomba is unique as it offers accommodation for NDIS participants and also their carer if needed.
Supported Independent Living (SIL)
We understand the importance of independence, this is why we provide a personal approach to give NDIS participants greater choice and control over who they choose to live with and how the supports are structured. These supports can be provided to participants in their own home, regardless of the property ownership (renting or not), or if it’s a shared or individual arrangement.
People living with a mental illness may also benefit from sharing a home with others who also need support. Our highly-skilled staff are ready to help find the best living arrangements and support staff to create a comfortable living space for all residents to ensure everyone feels right at home and has the opportunity to develop their skills.
Our personalised approach allows us to work closely with the participant, families and carers to find the best living arrangements for all involved.

We understand carers may need to step away from their caring role for a short period of time, whether they need a break for their own wellbeing or they’re faced with an emergency.
The form of emergency respite that Arafmi offers varies from a few hours, overnight, in-home or centre-based respite, depending on the funding available and your specific needs. To discuss our emergency respite options, please contact our team on 07 3254 1881.
