The Studio Program is at the core of our work in preventing youth homelessness. We offer one and two bedroom, fully relocatable studios (with bathroom) constructed on the grounds of the family or carer’s home. Each studio provides a stable, secure space for a young person to grow and study, while keeping them connected to their family or carer, thus reducing the risk of them being forced to leave home prematurely. A simple yet rigorous application process ensures young people get the help that’s appropriate to them.
You can’t apply directly to Kids Under Cover for a studio. Applications for studios must be made through Community Service Organisations(CSOs). If you are not already in contact with a CSO, have a look at this list for an appropriate organisation for you.
