The conduit for change 

Youngcare and the NDIS

There is a residential and care crisis throughout Australia for young people with high care needs. The crux of this crisis is the lack of opportunity for each person living with disability to choose their own pathway. Youngcare is boldly tackling this national issue by acting as the conduit for industry, government and community to work together to bring much-needed change to the disability housing sector.  The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will enable Youngcare to further enhance our impact in the disability sector.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has changed the disability sector forever. For the first time in Australian history young people with high care needs will be given the opportunity to craft their own care packages and CHOOSE who they live with and where and how they live their lives.

Through the NDIS, young people with high care needs, their family and carers will be given the opportunity to receive reasonable and necessary support.

NDIS reforms are only part of the solution, a severe shortage of disability housing options across the country remains. The NDIS has introduced the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) to address the historical lack of suitable housing options for young people with high care needs.

Specialist Disability Accommodation 

Through the provision of the NDIS, some participants with high care needs may be eligible to receive funding for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA).

NDIS participants with high care needs will be given the financial means and autonomy to command and secure their own choice of quality supported housing. The SDA framework addresses the current need for specialist housing solutions that are equipped to specifically cater for high care needs.

Demand for the SDA is significant, with approximately 28,000 people with high care needs being eligible for the scheme. However, there are no existing quality housing options for rent.

Youngcare believes this a unique opportunity to unite investors, developers, government, banks and care providers in a strategy that solves the youth disability residential crisis. In essence we believe that the community has been given the incentive to pursue a realistic investment opportunity in disability accommodation.
