This morning, over 7,000 young people woke up in aged care across Australia.  

A further 700,000 other young people with high care needs are being cared for each day by loved ones, with limited support.



Right now over 7,000 young Australians are living in aged care, simply because there are few alternatives.

With YOUR support we can drive change and keep young people out of aged care, because aged care is NO place for any young person.

Together, we can ensure every young Aussie with high care needs lives the young life they deserve.

When Youngcare Wesley Mission Brisbane Sinnamon Park resident, Julia moved out of aged care into her apartment she described it as though “someone has left the bird cage open and I have flown free.” 

You’re helping us to support young Aussies like Julia to live life with choice, independence and dignity
