KIDS CAMP-IN FOR KIDS

Taldumande Youth Services Virtual Fundraising Event April 18- May 31 2020

The number of homeless children and young people are skyrocketing as a result of Covid-19. Taldumande Youth Services is being inundated with new applications as families and vulnerable young people become victims of the Corona virus, not by infection, but by circumstance.

Taldumande Youth Services is hoping Schools, Business, Sporting, Community and Friend groups can help the plight of vulnerable children and Young People by taking part in Kids Camp-In for Kids

Children experiencing homelessness are an especially vulnerable population of Australians and on census night 2016 there were 19,400 children aged 1-14 without a home. Right now, indications are that there has never been more demand for homeless services. A time when most of us are safely isolating in our own homes. Job losses, school closures, financial hardship and the impact on mental health is seeing an influx of homeless numbers at an alarming rate.

Schools, community and sporting groups, businesses and individuals choose any night from April 18 to May 9 and register for Kids Camp-In for Kids with Taldumande Youth Services.

While at home all you need to do sleep a little ‘rough’ while still in the comfort of your own home, be sponsored by others and raise funds for those less fortunate. You could build a fort in the lounge room, go ‘old school’ and erect blankets over furniture with sleeping bags underneath, sleep on your veranda or set up a tent in your backyard for older children or the whole family.

Kids Camp-In for Kids and help us keep up the provision of services to Sydney’s homeless children and young people.
