Delivering educational facilities in Sheffield
LandAid works to improve the lives of children and young people in the UK who experience disadvantage due to their economic or social circumstances.
As a charitable foundation supported by the property industry, LandAid finds ways to apply the generosity and expertise of the industry to this cause.
Mainstream education isn’t easy for everyone. Pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, who face serious issues such as domestic violence, low income and poor self-esteem, can quickly find themselves disengaged with school.
Rooted in the Leeds community, Re’new Leeds work to prevent young people being permanently excluded from school. The organisation has an impressive 100% success rate in helping those at risk find alternative education, employment or training.
LandAid’s has donated a grant of £118,000 to Re’new Leeds in order to create space for day-time Alternative Education delivery and after-school community activities. The newly-acquired building will be refurbished by the charity’s own social enterprise, Renewal Construction.
