Across Australia there are currently 3,899 young people living in aged care. There are multiple reasons a young person may be living in aged care, but the most common reason for this type of care is a lack of alternative age appropriate accommodation options.
One of the most complex issues associated with young people living in aged is there is very little data about where exactly these young people are, making it hard to offer support and assistance.
Through our Y-House programs we want to engage with all young people living in aged care in Victoria, but we need your help to find each and every young person!
If you’re a young person living in aged care, or you know of a young person living in aged care, let us know!
