Corporate & Business Partnerships

Building Positive Futures With Help From Our Corporate Friends

The word ‘partnership’ carries significant meaning in the contemporary homelessness sector because having meaningful, supportive partnerships and relationships throughout the community is known to be fundamental for individuals to lead healthy and productive lives.

Having supportive partnerships and building strong relationships throughout the corporate community is imperative to ensuring the longevity of our Studio and Scholarship Programs. 

With a strong track record of establishing and building long-term, meaningful relationships that have delivered significant benefits and desired outcomes to both their business and the community, we are extremely grateful for the continued support we receive from our corporate partners.

Kids Under Cover’s national reach, innovative approach and strong focus on young people breaking the welfare cycle makes us well placed to help your business deliver on your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitments.
