Kids Under Cover is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness.
We offer young people the unique combination of supported housing options with scholarships
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.
Volunteering is a great way to make a difference, meet new people and learn new skills.
Kids Under Cover is lucky to have some truly dedicated volunteers as part of our team, regular volunteers who help out in the office, at our events and even involved with the Corporate Build program.
Anyone can volunteer, no matter what your skills, experience or background. With limited resources, volunteering is a vital part in helping us make a difference. Kids Under Cover can’t do it alone. We need your help to prevent at-risk young people from becoming homeless.
A little of your time can make a big difference to the impact of our work and the lives of young people.

Build your team and build a better future

Find out more or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Want to make a difference? Not sure how?
Why not host a quiz or bingo night, or morning tea at work, high tea or movie night? Or maybe you’d prefer to do a fun run, raising funds and awareness for Kids Under Cover? There are many different events and activities that you can organise or take part in on our behalf.
Without the support from all of our community fundraisers we could not continue to deliver our programs, building studios and providing scholarships for the young people we support.
We are always in need of people with skilled volunteers to help out in the office with general administration, maintenance, PR and other professional services like legal or HR.
