The key aim of the Summer Foundation is to change human service policy and practice related to young people in aged care. We use the following tools to influence health, housing and disability services policy and practice related to this target group:
We use a rigorous evidence base to inform potential solutions and evaluate interventions.
We engage those with lived experience of the issue of young people in aged care to inform, co-design and evaluate our resources, tools and interventions.
We design, test, evaluate and improve potential solutions and market interventions and disruptions.
We design, influence and advocate to establish best practice policy, to facilitate understanding and implementation of policy.
We develop and share resources and tools designed to build the capacity of system and market users.
