We are fighting for freedom of CHOICE for young people with high care needs

Who we are

Youngcare is a not-for-profit organisation creating choice and independence for young people (aged 16 – 65) with high care needs by providing fully accessible and age-appropriate living spaces, grants for equipment and home modifications and support through a national phone line.

Did you know? Youngcare receives NO recurring government funding. We rely solely on generous supporters like YOU to help young people with high care needs

Our Beliefs

We believe that ALL young people, regardless of their care needs, deserve the freedom to choose where they live, to choose who they live with and to choose how they live their lives. It’s a freedom we all deserve, which is why it’s up to all of us to make sure it happens.

Our Journey

For 15 years, we have been fighting to make a difference to the lives of young people with high care needs and the loved ones who care for them. Our fight continues.

Where it all began

It was one couple’s struggle to find dignified and appropriate care that inspired the formation of Youngcare.

In 2005, four mates vowed to change the considerable gap in care provision for young people with high care needs when at the age of just 33 Shevaune Conry, who had multiple sclerosis ended up living in aged care. It was the only place that could provide for her 24/7 care needs. With the purpose to create brighter futures for young people with high care needs, Youngcare was born.
