Thousands of young people with high physical support needs are being left behind.
They are stuck in places like aged care or institutional homes because there has been nowhere else for them to go. Youngcare is fighting for freedom, dignity and choice for young people with high physical support needs to choose where they live, who they live with, and how they live their lives.
At just 33 years of age, Luke ended up living his young life in aged care.
Now, he's living with independence, dignity and choice in his new apartment at North Lakes!
“Luke has choices now, he can have privacy, or mix it up with other people. He can go to the shop, or to the waterfront instead of sitting in his bed watching TV – day in, day out.”
