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

Who we are

Youngcare is a national not-for-profit, revolutionising the way young people with high care disability live – with freedom, dignity and choice. We are the force that empowers and drives change for young people with high physical support needs, creating a more inclusive Australia.

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

Our Mission

Youngcare is fighting for freedom, dignity and choice for young people with high physical support needs to choose where they live, who they live with, and how they live their lives. Too many young Australians with high physical support needs are being left behind. These young people deserve the freedom to live where and how they want — and it’s up to all of us to make that happen.

For almost two decades, we have been redefining integrated living, creating a future where every young person with high care disability feels at home — and free to live, equally — in their community.

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.
