Youngcare At Home Care Grants Available

 

Applications for the Youngcare At Home Care Grants in Victoria are now open.

Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh is encouraging families and service providers who are caring at home for a young person with high care needs to look at this funding opportunity. 

Mr Walsh said Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants (AHCG) provide funding for equipment, home modifications and essential support/respite to enhance the quality of life for people aged 18-65 with high care needs, and their carers.

He said funding of $2,000 - $10,000 is designed to enable young people with high care needs to remain at home and avoid entering inappropriate housing.

“Examples of grants that have been approved include applications for respite care, ceiling hoists, a water-powered hydraulic lift, in-home support, a wheelchair ramp, air conditioning, power wheelchair, pressure cushion and electrical adjustable bed to name a few.

“It is important to note that individuals  without NDIS funding can apply,” Mr Walsh said.

Applications opened on 30 January 2019 and will close on 13 March 2019.

Further details are available by emailing  ahcg@youngcare.com.au or phoning 1800 844 727.
