Thousands of young Australians with high care disabilities are being left behind, living in institutions like aged care because there is nowhere else for them to go.
Every week an average of 42 young people enter aged care; a quarter of these people are parents and more than a third, sadly, suffer from depression. This is no way for any young person to live.
Youngcare is tackling this national issue by building High Care Housing, providing vital grants and offering support and advice through their Youngcare Connect support line. Youngcare is creating a future where every young person has the freedom and choice to live the young lives we all deserve.
