New accommodation for young Aussies
June 7, 2012
Appco Group Support's client Youngcare, a national charity in Australia that supports young people with 24/7 care needs, is proud to unveil its new home located at the Gold Coast.
The Apartments on Australia's sunny Gold Coast cost over $4 Million to build and feature seven one bedroom apartments. This brand new home has been made possible by the combined support of the community, government and businesses like Appco Group Support in Australia, who helped raise funds for Youngcare by recruiting regular donors.
Appco Group Support in Australia has worked with Youngcare from July 1, 2011 through to April 30, 2012 in three states - New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland - to support their ongoing work including the Youngcare Connect support hotline, At Home Care Grants and the Youngcare Apartments.
Right now, there are 7,500 young Aussies with high care needs living in aged care - simply because there are very limited alternatives. This number is staggering and as Youngcare receives no ongoing Government funding, Appco Group is proud to be supporting their ongoing vital work.
