For 13 years, Youngcare has been fighting to make a difference to the lives of young people with high care needs and their loved ones who care for them. However, there are still too many young Australians being left behind in, or facing the prospect of inappropriate housing.
As you may have constituents in your electorate with high care needs at risk of entering inappropriate housing, I would like to take this opportunity to bring this round of funding to your attention and to invite you to forward this information on to interested families and their service providers.
Applications for Youngcare's At Home Care Grants in Queensland and Northern Territory are closing at 4pm on Wednesday, 12 September 2018!
This grant round has the largest amount of funding we've EVER had, so there is an enormous opportunity to take advantage of. The grants provide one-off funding of up to $10,000 for essential equipment, home modifications and support/respite to enhance the quality of life for young people with high care needs and their carers.
Should you have any questions about the grants, please contact our Youngcare Connect team on 1800 844 727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
