A helping hand from Hand Heart Pocket

Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants are set to continue helping more young Queenslanders with high care needs to remain at home with their loved ones this year, thanks to the incredible support of Hand Heart Pocket.

As the charity of Freemasons Queensland, Hand Heart Pocket makes a difference at a grassroots level in local communities with far-reaching initiatives that will benefit all Queenslanders. Hand Heart Pocket has been working alongside Youngcare as the chosen charity of Mrs Carol Bacon, wife of Dr Gary Bacon, Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of Queensland.

Hand Heart Pocket’s recent donation will provide significant funding towards Youngcare’s 2016 At Home Care Grants round in Queensland, due to open on 3 August. This round will enable approximately 30 young people with high care needs avoid aged care by providing funding for equipment, home modifications and emergency respite care and allowing them to continue living at home.

We are extremely thankful to Carol Bacon and the passionate team at Hand Heart Pocket for partnering with us to support young people with high care needs to live life with greater choice, dignity and independence. Together, we are creating far-reaching change and are one step closer to a future where no young Aussie has to call aged care “home”.
