It's the ultimate Australian adventure challenge.   This trek will be a daily mental and physical challenge, but it is one that will have a profound impact on the lives of young people with high care needs and their loved ones. The completely isolated environment provides a striking reflection of the challenges that young people with high care needs face on a daily basis.

By taking on the Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge 2019, you are helping Youngcare to;

• Build more relevant and age-appropriate housing in Australia

• Provide information and support via our Youngcare Connect service

• Provide grants to young people with high care needs who are at risk of entering aged care to keep them at home, or transition them from aged care back into their community

• Undertake world-first research to better understand the needs of young people with high care needs


By signing up to this once-in-a-lifetime experience, you will be making a direct impact in the lives of young people with high care needs and their loved ones. We all deserve to live with freedom, and to choose where and how we live our lives.

Youngcare

Right now, Australia has a severe shortage of housing for young people with high care needs. There are too many young people with high care needs being left behind in inappropriate and unacceptable housing. At Youngcare, we passionately believe all young people deserve to live young lives – regardless of their care needs – and we know you agree.
