Youngcare is proud to have the invaluable support of our foundation partner Suncorp. For almost two decades Suncorp has remained by our side, committed to ensuring that young people with physical disability can live a life of choice, independence, and dignity. Without this support, Youngcare would not be delivering the outcomes we are today for some of the country’s most vulnerable.
Suncorp’s assistance has touched so many of Youngcare’s programs over the years, from the Youngcare At Home Care Grants, Youngcare Connect Information Line and Support service and now also through developing Youngcare’s Financial Literacy Program for young people with high physical support needs, their families and their support workers
The wider Suncorp team have been phenomenal champions of the Youngcare cause, getting involved through a range of activities such as volunteering, fundraising events, and advocacy campaigns. Through Suncorp’s ongoing staff engagement Youngcare has been able to achieve our fundraising goals, ensure awareness of our mission has been spread across the country and grown our impact for countless young people and their families around Australia – At every turn, the Suncorp team have been there to help.
Suncorp Manager of Policy and Regulation, Brendan Bolton took part in the 2021 Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge. Brendan bravely trekked 9 days in the desert to understand the isolation and lack of choice which young people with disability face every day – all while raising over $77,000 for young people with disability! Suncorp have generously put forward a trekker every year since 2011.
