Sensum is delighted to support Kids Under Cover (KUC), a Melbourne based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness in Australia. As well as our considerable annual donations, we provide technical and industry specific advice on the manufacture and delivery of KUC’s prefabricated studios.
The KUC prefabricated studios support young people at risk of homelessness, families at risk of breakdown, kinship care, and foster carers seeking additional space to accommodate young people in their care. KUC offers one and two-bedroom prefabricated studios (with bathroom) which can be installed in the backyard of existing dwellings.
These studios provide support to young people and to their families or carers, while providing semi-independent living space for the young person to live and study. Once the studio is no longer required, it is relocated to accommodate another person in need.
The current structure of the studios is prefabricated. The entire kit is flat-packed with pre-assembled frames and transported via truck to the installation location. Studios can be erected and fully fitted out within 10 days. They are demountable and can be flat-packed for relocation up to four times, with a life-span of 20 years.
