Summer FoundationEstablished in 2006, the Summer Foundation is committed to growing a movement that will resolve the issue of young people living in nursing homes. Supporting, informing and empowering people with disability and their families is key to resolving this issue.
We build the capacity of this sector rather than focus on building our own organisation. We share knowledge, skills and leadership with other organisations. We collaborate with other non-profits organisations to increase funding for the disability sector rather than compete for scarce resources. We share credit and power within the organisation and with other organisations. Preserving our credibility is paramount; we are committed to integrity in our relationship with others and the presentation of facts.
The organisation has three key areas of focus:
Conducting and fostering research that provides an evidence base for policy change
Supporting people with disability to share their stories with the Australian community to highlight the importance of our work, and keep the issue on the political agenda
Developing integrated housing demonstration projects in order to increase the range and number of supported accommodation options.
