Youngcare

Suncorp is proud to support Youngcare, a not-for-profit organisation spearheading powerful and positive change to help young people with high care needs live the lives we all deserve.

Since 2007, Suncorp has worked with Youngcare on their mission to provide choice, independence and dignity for people with high physical support needs. Together we are tackling economic and social issues impacting one of society's most vulnerable segments.  Through Personal Injury Insurance, we have collaborated in the areas of grants, advocacy and awareness to materially reduce financial stress and provide social inclusion for people and their families.

Suncorp’s investment in Youngcare comes from a deep understanding of the impact that road and workplace injuries can have on people and their families. As one of Australia’s largest private Personal Injury insurers, Suncorp believes in taking a leadership role in the development of statutory insurance public policies that serve the needs of the community. Personal injury insurance plays a critical role not only in supporting the economy, but also in providing essential support to injured people, their families and the broader community.

Suncorp is proud to support Youngcare as it continues to provide relevant and dignified lifestyles for young Australians.

Suncorp is proud to support Youngcare through the At Home Care Grants program and the Youngcare Connect support line. Through our personal injury insurance channels, we see the importance of investing to help young people with high care physical support needs live with more choice, dignity and independence. For Suncorp to be in partnership with Youngcare, and support grants destined for life saving medical equipment or services, for car modifications to transport someone in a wheelchair, bathroom modifications, wheelchairs, medical beds etc, gives the work we do even greater purpose.” – Matt Pearson, Executive General Manager Statutory Classes, Suncorp.

In May 2023, Vlado Adzaip (CTP Scheme Specialist SA) and a small group of Youngcare supporters will take on the ultimate Australian adventure for nine incredible days - the Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge. They will endure harsh conditions and imposing sand dunes as they trek for more than 225km across the Simpson Desert to raise funds and awareness for young people with high physical support needs.

Suncorp has partnered with Youngcare since 2007, a not-for-profit organisation creating choice and independence for young people living with high care needs. Youngcare provides fully accessible and age-appropriate living spaces, grants for equipment, and home modifications.

Suncorp is helping Vlado fundraise for this adventure, and you can too! Please visit the Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge fundraising page - Youngcare - Vlado Adzaip. Any contribution large or small is greatly appreciated.
