Youngcare - MTA Queensland's Charity Partner
MTA Queensland are proud supporters of our Charity Partner, Youngcare.
Youngcare is a not-for-profit organisation spearheading powerful and positive change to create a future where every young person with high care needs has the freedom, choice and dignity to live the lives we all deserve.
There is a severe shortage of age appropriate housing in Australia and Youngcare is rallying industry, government and the community to develop viable and replicable housing and care models to solve the problem once and for all. These young people deserve the freedom to choose where they live, who they live with and how they live their lives— and it’s up to all of us to make sure that happens.
