This issue spans to the corners of the country, yet it’s so close to home

The Issue

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 inappropriate housing simply because there is nowhere else for them to go.

There is a residential and care crisis throughout Australia for young people with high care needs. Young Australians are being left behind in aged care, hospital rooms, rehabilitation centres – inappropriate accommodation that is not suitable for their age. The crux of this crisis is the lack of opportunity for each person living with disability to choose their own pathway due to limited options. Youngcare is boldly tackling this national issue by acting as the conduit for industry, government and the community to work together to bring much-needed change to the disability housing sector. The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will enable Youngcare to further enhance our impact in the disability sector.
