Research underpins the work of the Summer Foundation and provides an evidence base for policy and practice change.
The Summer Foundation is building housing demonstration projects to provide concrete examples of alternatives for young people living in nursing homes.
Enabling young people and their families to tell their stories is a powerful tool to influence others and effect change.
The NDIS is an exciting and significant part of the solution to resolve the issue of young people in nursing homes but it is not a silver bullet.
Established in 2006, the key aim of the Summer Foundation is to change human service policy and practice related to young people in nursing homes. The Summer Foundation utilises a range of strategies to influence health, housing, aged care and disability service policy and practice related to this target group.
