Every year Sydney West Riders (SWR) host an annual ride to support a youth cause. On Saturday January 20 2018, we will be raising awareness and funds for youth non-for-profit organisation, “Kids Under Cover”. Kids Under Cover originated from Melbourne in 1993. Their mission is to prevent young people becoming homeless within Australia. The work involves providing secure accommodation for young people at risk, keeping families together and providing ongoing job and educational opportunities for youths. Kids Under Cover focuses on early identification of issues and prevention of youth homelessness, creating a proactive rather than reactive approach to this very complex issue.
Kids Under Cover CEO, Jo Swift, expressed her gratitude to the Sydney West Riders (SWR) motorcycle group. “The power of community fundraising event such as the ‘Start of Year Ride’ is significant in not only supporting our work but more importantly raising awareness of the issue of youth homelessness. Helping to prevent youth homelessness can be a whole community affair, I commend the commitment of the organisers and participants, we are extremely grateful to have been chosen as the charity for the 2018 ride.”
“Kids Under Cover is focused on preventing youth homelessness through practical measures and early intervention. Support like this assists us in building relocatable studios for at-risk young people to live in while remaining connected to family and support networks, providing the valuable space they need.”
Currently with more than 500 studios on the ground in Victoria, Queensland, NSW and the ACT. The organisation is in conversations with the NSW Government to help push its presences in Sydney. This means, its our opportunity to promote the life changing work of Kids Under Cover in Sydney. This will be our 5th annual ride. In the past years, we have fund raised for youth organisations such as Youth off the Streets, WhiteLion and Inspire180. Given that many issues faced by adults in today’s time tend to escalate from one’s living experience as a youth, it is crucial that on-going backing for non-profit organisations such as Kids Under Cover are supported
