“For me, there is no other charity organisation as involved, caring and appreciative as Youngcare. I have met many fantastic people through volunteering and every experience I have had at races, festivals and community events have been nothing but positive. For anyone wanting to make a difference or wanting to enrich their own lives, I would definitely recommend volunteering for this fantastic organisation.

I hold this charity very close to my heart because I can personally see how important organisations like Youngcare are for young people with disabilities, their family and friends. My older sister has a physical impairment and she would love nothing more than to move out of home. Unfortunately, this is not a simple or currently possible process due to her limitations. She is one of the most intelligent and driven people I know and there is nothing more frustrating than when your body can’t keep up with your goals and aspirations. 

It is so comforting to know Youngcare is actively doing something about this problem. Every young Australian deserves to live a young life!”
