The Summer Foundation has lodged its submission to the Aged Care Royal Commission.
The submission identifies the key policy and systemic changes needed to stop young people being forced into aged care. It covers what needs to change and how it can happen.
Our 12 recommendations are based on our extensive work with young people in aged care and with providers in the health and aged care sectors.
The people whose stories we used to illustrate the realities of living in aged care were selected from 95 young people who participated in one-on-one conversations with us.
