We're an up-and-coming charity which is currently in development. The charity will be launched sometime this year. The charity is being set up to work for young adults, 14-35, with complex health needs as well as their parents and families. We aim to ensure that every young adult, regardless of condition, need or location, has access to the care and support they require to live a rich, fulfilling and enjoyable life. YACCA will be the voice for these young adults and their families, offering direct support, campaigning and lobbying, undertaking projects and developing pilots, seeking to better understand this hidden group of the population and to get young adult care firmly on the agenda.
Founded by Lucy Watts MBE, much work is going on behind the scenes to get the charity set up and launched.
We do however need to raise a minimum of £5000 to register as a charity. Check back and we will put a link to a crowdfunding page if you would like to support us to move towards launch and becoming the voice for these hidden, forgotten young adults and their families.
Thank you for being patient. We hope to get the website running soon.
