In the coming year we’re aiming to launch Y-Assist, a brand new advocacy program directed at preventing young people from being placed into aged care directly from hospitals and rehabilitation centres. As the main source of admissions to aged care, we want to support health networks and their allied health teams to develop discharge plans that avoid placing young people into unsuitable housing.

As part of the Y-Assist program we will create a new Y-House consultant role to directly assist health care staff in navigating the discharge planning process for young people with complex disabilities.
