The challenge invites passionate hikers to embark on a transformative journey, all in support of young people with physical disabilities.

For four remarkable days, amidst the breathtaking scenery of Kosciuszko National Park and the awe-inspiring glacial lakes of Australia’s mainland, courageous Youngcare supporters take on a formidable challenge. They conquer a demanding 60km hike, conquering the top 10 peaks in Australia. This rugged and isolated environment, with its challenging conditions and limited choices, serves as a powerful reminder of the daily struggles faced by young people with high physical support needs.

The Youngcare 10 Peak challenge is a brilliant way to challenge yourself at the same time as raising much needed funds for young people with high support needs. The challenge took me out of my comfort zone and isolated me in more ways than one. Its hard, its cold, its exhilarating at times, but the friendships and experiences you have during the challenge can not be bet. This is something I will never forget.”  -  10 Peaks Trekker 2022



About the 10 Peaks Challenge

Core Message

The completely isolated environment, and tough conditions, where there is little control over personal choice, provides a striking reflection of the challenges that young people with high physical support needs face on a daily basis.

How your dollars count

By participating in the trek or donating to one of our trekkers, you are helping Youngcare: 

  • Build more relevant and age-appropriate housing in Australia
  • Provide information and support via our Youngcare Connect service
  • Provide grants to young people with high physical support needs who are at risk of entering aged care to keep them at home, or transition them from aged care back into their community
  • Undertake world-first research to better understand the needs of young people with high physical support needs

Too many young Australians with high physical support needs are being left behind. These young people deserve the freedom to live where and how they want — and it’s up to all of us to make that happen.

Youngcare is fighting for freedom, dignity and choice for young people with high physical support needs to choose where they live, who they live with, and how they live their lives.

Youngcare achieves this through developing aspirational Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), advocating for much-needed policy change, delivering vital grants programs, and providing education, advice and pathways through our free support service.
