Our founder’s story

Ken Morgan is the Founding Patron of Kids Under Cover. Popularly known as one of Australia’s most recognisable motor industry personalities, his public persona masked a very difficult past. Ken was a homeless teenager after his mother’s unexpected passing.

Ken and Lenka
Kids Under Cover celebrated its 25th birthday in 2014. Over the years we have grown and adapted to changing needs, but the vision of our founder remains at the heart of everything we do.

One morning while still in his teens, Ken found himself sleeping on a park bench in Sydney’s Kings Cross. He was woken by a local policeman who was walking the early morning beat. As Ken appeared dazed and confused, the officer took pity and sat down beside him. Three hours later Ken’s life had been changed forever. A complete stranger had taken time to show Ken there were people out there who really did care. Ken has never forgotten the message of hope delivered on that fateful day.

In turning his life around, Ken made a commitment to pursue philanthropic interests. Among other things, Ken chaired the Variety Club (Vic) for four years and also became a Variety Club National Board Member.

In 1989 the federal government released “Our Homeless Children – Report of the National Inquiry into Homeless Children” by Brian Burdekin. The disturbing findings moved Ken to build a house for homeless young people. This was the birth of Kids Under Cover.

Ken has been a recipient of a Humanitarian Award from the Australian Humanitarian Foundation (2000), and the Centenary Medal (2003) for his services to the community – in particular youth homelessness.

A Life Governor of the Royal Children’s Hospital, Ken was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in 2010. He received this award in recognition of his philanthropic work with sick children through the Royal Children’s Hospital and Variety Club Australia; and of course his work over the years in the fight against youth homelessness.

In 2015, Ken received the award for Automotive Dealer Contribution to Community at the Australian Automotive Dealer Association National Dealer Convention.

Although Ken retired from the Kids Under Cover Board in 2012, he remains devoted to ensuring Kids Under Cover’s continued success and growth.
