What’s this all about?

Why should I give up my bed?

Did you know on any given night in Australia....

  • 116,4277 people will be homeless (14% increase in homelessness in the last 5 years)
  • 250 people will be turned away from crisis centres
  • 44,000 youths will not have a safe and secure place to sleep at night
  • 460 children under the age of 12 will be sleeping rough

Kids in Philanthropy (KiP) want to change these numbers, and we need your help to do it! So, sign up for Hangout for the Homeless and start making a change.

But where is the money going?

This year, KiP will be supporting Kids Under Cover

Kids Under Cover (KUC) has been working hard for 30 years to prevent youth homelessness.

KUC support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people between the ages of 12 and 25 years who are either experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.

At the heart of their work is the Studio Program. One or two bedroom studios – with bathroom, are built in the backyards of a family or carer’s home. This provides secure and stable accommodation for young people at risk of homelessness.

KUC also provide scholarships to ensure ongoing engagement with education or job training.

It is Kids Under Cover’s mission to provide young people at risk of homelessness the foundations to strengthen their connection to family, community, and education.
