COVID-19 Update - Supporting Our Community More Than Ever

COVID-19 Update – Supporting Our Community More Than Ever

As a charity, Youngcare is acutely aware of the unprecedented developments unfolding in our global environment. As you know, it has left a large majority of our community, especially our Australians with disabilities, exposed and incredibly vulnerable.

We are beside you in your worry, not only for yourself but for your friends, loved ones and the wider community.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT

In this time of crisis, the reality of not having enough suitable housing available for people with disabilities and what that means for our community is overwhelming. Many will face the reality of being moved into Aged Care, simply because they cannot remain in hospital and have no other options. As Australians we are so much better than this

In the face of this adversity, we are choosing to fight.

We will provide further updates as they come to light, but rest assured that the Youngcare team are working harder than ever for young people with high care needs to live with independence choice and dignity. This includes lobbying government to ensure appropriate pathways for young people who are currently stuck in hospital and continuing to progress our housing developments, as best we can in this environment.

The Youngcare team will be working harder than ever to support those in our community; fundraising for them and advocating for their rights, and we ask that you do the same.
