There are 6,500 young Australians with full-time care needs currently living in aged care and further 700,000 are being cared for at home by family and friends.Youngcare exists to drive change to create real choice in care and accommodation options for young Australians with full-time care needs. To promote the works of Youngcare’s the organisation host a national awareness day called Thong Day (1st October). Thongs represent youth, freedom and fun, all things that young Australians have the right to experience. Youngcare’s national Thong Day raises money to fund more appropriate care and accommodation options for young Australians with round-the-clock care needs.
