Home Soon Grants
Helping young people move out of aged care
Youngcare is pleased to announce the continuation of the Home Soon Grants program, alongside our Foundation Partner Suncorp Insurance.
Home Soon Grants are available for individuals aged between 18 and 65 who are currently living in residential aged care, hospital or a rehabilitation centre and who wish to return home or to supported accommodation.
The Youngcare Home Soon Grants provide funding between $5,000 -$20,000 (up to $50,000 in exceptional circumstances) for funding of eligible equipment, home modifications and services such as respite or in-home care. Please CLICK HERE to download the Information Guide.
Ideally, Youngcare’s Home Soon Grants are intended to supplement an existing plan for a young person to exit residential aged care to ensure there is a smooth transition back into the community for both individuals and their carers.
Applications for the Home Soon Grants 2016/17 are now open.
To date, the Home Soon Grants program has distributed over $290,000, enabling sixteen young Australians with high care needs to make a successful transition from aged care into age-appropriate accommodation.
Applicants will be notified of an outcome within 35 days after receipt of an application.
