For 12 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.
Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants enhance the quality of life for young people (aged 18-65 years) with high care needs living at home and at risk of entering inappropriate housing.
One-off grants of $2,000-$10,000 are available for the provision of essential equipment, home modifications or services enabling young people with high care needs to remain at home surrounded by loved ones with the choice and dignity we all deserve.
The online application form and information booklet can be accessed from the Youngcare website (https://www.youngcare.com.au/) on Wednesday, 2 August 2017.
Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, 13 September 2017.
