THANK YOU for joining us to create change!

We give heartfelt thanks for the ongoing generosity of supporters like you who provide choice, dignity, and independence for young people living with physical disabilities.

YOU are making a real difference

Grants

Vital grant funding helps young people with physical disabilities exit, or avoid moving into, inappropriate housing.

Thanks to you, over 1,800 young people have been granted $11.3m to support their quality of life and enable them to live with more dignity and independence.

Youngcare Connect

Our team of kind experts provides information and advice to individuals and families navigating the complicated disability sector.

Thanks to you, our compassionate Youngcare Connect team have an average of 5,000 conversations per year with people seeking advice and support. We could not do it without you – thank you!

Housing

Our building program designs and builds accessible, quality homes in sought-after locations, so young people with physical disabilities can live with choice and freedom.

Your support allows hundreds of young people with disabilities to feel at home, and free to live equally in their communities.

Meet young people YOU help

James

When James was a baby, he lost oxygen to his brain which resulted in many complex physical disabilities. His parents cared for James at home for 21 years, until lifting James became too dangerous for their ageing bodies. Now, James is living his best young life in the North Lakes apartments,

“There’s reassurance he’s cared for moving forward, for years to come.”

Luke

Just before Luke’s 30th birthday, he received a life-changing diagnosis – Huntington’s Disease. Luke was left isolated and living in a remote care facility a six-hour round trip away from his family and friends.

Thanks to your support and caring generosity Luke has moved out of aged care and into his own apartment!

Bev

With a Home Support Grant, Bev was able to move into an accessible apartment close to loved ones after an incredibly tough few years.

“I would like to say thank you so much. Don’t underestimate the change you make for people’s lives. The Grant changed my life significantly. And even in a roundabout way, my granddaughter’s because if I hadn’t moved up here, she wouldn’t have ended up being able to move in with me. And that was unexpected.”

Dan

Dan was grateful to receive a Youngcare Home Support Grant, funded by you, our generous donors and supporters. The grant helped support Dan’s move into his apartment.

“It was amazing. I got a washing machine and a dryer with your help. Another massive thing was Youngcare arranging a moving truck for me. Being 6 hours away, I wouldn’t have been able to bring much by myself. It helped immensely as it meant another thing that I didn’t have to worry about.”

Hear the voices of other supporters, just like YOU

Karen Young (monthly donor for 10 years counting)

“Many years ago I heard about David Conry’s mission to find more appropriate housing support for his wife Shevaune. Up until that point, I had no idea that young people like Shevaune were put in aged care facilities. It came as a complete shock and I felt inspired to support this amazing endeavour. I’ve been a regular monthly donor for more than ten years. I’m proud to have been involved for so long. I love what Youngcare stands for and I will continue to support them for the rest of my life.”

Diane Dale (monthly donor for 16 years counting) –

“My reason for continuing to donate to Youngcare on a regular basis as it is very close to home for me. I was in the process of trying to get my son, Cam, back home, from aged care, and find out more about Youngcare’s housing. Sadly, he was admitted to Palliative Care and passed away November 2006. That was it for me I was committed to making sure that I would help.  It is an amazing organisation and I will continue to do so.”

David and Jenny –

“The goal at Youngcare is such an important one; to make sure that there is age-appropriate housing available for people who need it. David’s brother had a stroke more that 20 years ago and has been cared for by their mother, who is now well into her 80’s. Still in his early sixties, he would like to be in a care home with people his own age. We need more options available to people his age. We are fairly new donors at Youngcare, but it has been a great experience for us. The donations team at Youngcare are friendly, professional, and really care about their donors.”
