Living away from home allowance (LAFHA)

The living away from home allowance is an allowance for eligible apprentices and trainees of any age, if you are required to move away from parents’ or guardians’ home in order to take up or retain an apprenticeship or traineeship.

The allowance is available to eligible full and part-time apprentices, trainees and school-based apprentices during the first three years of your training.
