    Description Young People In Nursing Homes National Alliance is Australia's first peak body for young Australians living in aged care facilities (or at risk of placement there), who also have high and complex support needs. It works with young people living in aged care facilities, their families, friends and other stakeholders to develop the support services and accommodation that young Australians with high or complex support needs require to pursue their lives in the community. It collaborates with service providers in the aged care, disability, health, housing and community services sectors, and encourages a partnership approach to resolve the issue with State and Commonwealth governments. The Alliance supports young people living in nursing homes and their families to have a voice, the capacity to participate and be directly involved in developing the services they use, and in systemic changes and policy initiatives at all levels of government.
