FutureSteps Supports Kids Under Cover
Lendlease’s FutureSteps is proudly partnering with Kids Under Cover to support their life-changing programs for young people at risk of homelessness.
Kids Under Cover is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness by helping young, at-risk people to strengthen their connection to family, community and education. Kids Under Cover provides studio accommodation and education scholarships. This combination of services is a simple yet effective approach to the long-term prevention of youth homelessness.
“Kids Under Cover is truly grateful for the support from Lendlease’s FutureSteps. This partnership, combining a grant, furnishings and volunteers, will make a life-changing impact in the lives of young people who are supported by our programs.” said Kids Under Cover CEO Jo Swift.
Established in December 2018, FutureSteps is a shared value initiative established by Lendlease to help address homelessness and rising levels of housing stress in Australia. The initiative builds on the belief that all Australians have the right to a safe and secure home.
“FutureSteps is grounded in the belief that everyone should have access to safe and secure housing and organisations like Kids Under Cover provide tangible solutions for young people to gain access to the housing and support tools they need to find a path to independence” said Lendlease Property CEO and Chair of the FutureSteps Advisory Committee, Kylie Rampa.
