We found John’s story incredibly touching, having become a quadriplegic at the age of 15 from a football injury.
John still loves rugby league to this day and helps the Balmain Tigers with their game statistics.
Now at the age of 35, John is reliant on family, friends and carers to help him everyday.
He would love the personal freedom that Youngcare would provide him, so he could live with his girlfriend and experience independence just like any other young Australian.
Youngcare’s mission is to provide choice in care and housing options for young people with high care needs and achieved this through Youngcare Housing and Youngcare At Home Care Grants.
