The Younger people with disability in residential aged care: 2010-11 report examines the outcomes of the Younger people with disability in residential aged care (YPIRAC) 5-year program. The program aims to reduce the number of people with disability under the age of 65 living in residential aged care. The report presents information on the people who were provided with support under the YPIRAC initiative and the services they received during the period 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011. The report found that one in ten people that accessed the YPIRAC service were Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander  who were more likely to be men, live in regional, remote or very remote areas, primarily report a disability of acquired brain injury and live in supported accommodation.
