At Home Care Grants

Keeping young people at home with their families

Helping young people with high care needs to remain at home

Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants (AHCG) provide funding for equipment, home modifications and emergency respite care to enhance the quality of life for young people with high care needs and their carers.

The AHCG program is critical in keeping young Australians at home with their families, and preventing new admissions to inappropriate housing. Grants are offered in Queensland, News South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

Each round of Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants is drastically oversubscribed, there is simply not enough funding to help everyone in need. In 2015 there was an over subscription of over $740,000, demonstrating the urgent need for this essential funding.
