Kids Under Cover supports vulnerable young people at risk of homelessness by building studios
There are many ways to get involved and help at-risk young people and their families.
Working at a not-for-profit means that you wear many hats to do what needs to be done. Sometimes that means getting out there and getting your hands dirty!
One of the most innovative things about a Kids Under Cover studio is its reusability. Our studios aren’t a set-and-forget solution, they’ve been designed to be built, loved by a family and then moved to the care of another family for whom this solution can make a huge impact. However, before they can go to their new family, studios generally require some maintenance and a spring clean. That’s where we come in!
On a sunny day in January, I joined with my colleagues Andy, Cale and Ben to step out of the office and spend some time giving the studio some TLC, ensuring it’s readiness for its new family. We spent the day cleaning carpets, washing, patching and repainting walls, scrubbing the bathroom and more. After a full day of brushing, wiping and scraping, the studio was spic-and-span, ready for a brand-new family to live in and love.
It can be dirty work but spending a day bonding with the team is so rewarding. And it also means that there is one more family which will have the benefit of stable accommodation and connectedness… some of the best rewards possible.
