A voice for young people with high care needs

Knowledge Partnership

Youngcare has worked closely with Griffith University to develop world-first research into the needs and aspirations of young people with high care needs.

With the introduction of the NDIS, every young person with high care needs will be able to choose their own care packages and our model will set the standard of premium care in Australia and will become the most sought after care in the sector.

The Design Philosophy is continually informed by ongoing research via our strong relationship with the disability sector. This means Youngcare is able to provide the health, disability and housing sectors with practical tools and information to make a difference.

Youngcare can advise on:

  • New models of support and housing in the community
  • Young people’s preferences for housing
  • Tools for evaluating quality care provision
  • Understanding self-direction and its impact on young people
  • Developing evidence-based design specifications for housing that are consumer driven

Youngcare has collaborated with Griffith University and developed the My Accessible Home website’, based on research by Dr Courtney Wright. The website gathers vital information to assist young people and their families to access housing information and plan for their futures. For the first time, people with disability and their carers can create their dream home by navigating through images and collate all their ideas and requirements in one spot. If you are looking for help planning for your dream home, check out My Accessible Home!

Recover Injury Research Centre is a joint initiative of the Motor Accident Insurance Commission, Griffith University and The University of Queensland. Recover produces breakthrough research which leads to better outcomes after injury, especially when caused by road traffic crashes.
