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.
For thirty years, Kids Under Cover’s unique combination of accommodation and scholarships have been a proven and effective strategy of preventing young people from becoming homeless.
Your donation will help keep young people in education, feeling connected and included. You will give young people a greater chance at a brighter future.
A Kids Under Cover scholarship helps keep young people connected to education or training. Not just by helping financially with educational expenses, but also by preventing the social exclusion that can haunt young people who miss out on camps, excursions or other school activities due to lack of funds.
After a traumatic childhood having experienced abuse, neglect and family violence, sometimes finding refuge sleeping in a car, at the age of seven Hannah was welcomed into her foster family with open arms.
Now, thanks to the support of Kids Under Cover, Hannah is in her third year of university studying to be a Social Worker.
The cost of equipment, textbooks and, of course, travel to-and-from university can quickly stack up. Not only did Hannah’s scholarship provide significant financial ease for the family, it meant that Hannah can afford to focus on university rather than worry about how it will be paid for.
“The Studio and Scholarships have helped our entire family. Hannah’s foster brother Tim* completed a biomedical degree with the help of three Kids Under Cover Scholarships. Hannah’s foster sister Carla* just turned 18 and has secured a Kids Under Cover scholarship a few months ago.” Hannah’s Carer
