There are many young people with disabilities living in nursing homes.  The new National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) promises a great step forward for supporting people with disabilities getting on with their lives.  However, as  this Pro Bono News post explains, it will not help those young people in aged care nursing homes as there is already a lack of suitable and affordable housing for all young people with disabilities. Research has found that ’53 per cent of young people in residential aged care received a visit from a friend less than once a year’.

Here is my cartoon for the Pro Bono website:

  1. Hi there
    I’d really like permission to use this cartoon in a university presentation I’m doing. I live in Canada and I’m a disabled PhD student whose work focuses on this area – young disabled people in seniors homes. I have sent an email – I’d be grateful to hear from you! Many thanks!

    • Hello Michelle, certainly, I’m happy for you to use the cartoon in your presentation. Best wishes,
      Simon
