The conduit for change 

Youngcare and the NDIS

Suitable and appropriate supported housing is one of the greatest areas of unmet need for people with disabilities in Australia. Currently, there are 12,000 young people being left behind in aged care, hospital rooms, rehabilitation centres – institutionalised accommodation – simply because there is nowhere else for them to go.

Youngcare’s programs bridge the gaps, by funding not only ‘reasonable and necessary’ disability items and services but those that provide further choice, independence and quality of life for the young people we help. Youngcare will continue to work with government and advocate to ensure young people with high physical care needs have the choice over where they live, who they live with and how they live their lives.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has changed the disability sector forever. Young people with high care needs will be given the opportunity to craft their own care packages and CHOOSE where they live, who they live with 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.

Specialist Disability Accommodation 

Through the provision of the NDIS, some participants with high physical 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 addresses the current need for specialist housing solutions that are equipped to specifically cater for high care needs of which Youngcare is proud to provide.

Demand for the SDA is significant, with approximately 28,000 people with high care needs being eligible for the scheme. However, there is a severe shortage of existing housing options.

Youngcare believes this a unique opportunity to unite investors, developers, government, banks and care providers in a strategy that solves the disability residential crisis.
