Kids Under Cover is the only not-for-profit organisation in Australia providing disadvantaged young people with space to thrive; by providing studio accommodation in family back yards and education scholarships.
By making space for living we make space for a better life.
We work closely with Community Service Organisations to identify young people or families who need our help. If you are in crisis, please click for info on emergency assistance.
A little of your time, even a small donation can make a big difference to someone in need. Volunteers & community fundraisers are crucial to our work.
Your donation today will help carers provide young people at risk with a stable and secure environment and improve their connection to school, family and community.
There are a lot of misconceptions about homelessness and who it affects. One certainty is that prevention is better than cure.
