Delivering life skills through sport in Croydon
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.
Unemployment for 16-24 year olds in Hampshire currently stands at 3%. Motiv8 in Gosport supports more than 900 of those vulnerable and at risk young people every year, taking them away from a lifestyle characterised by crime and anti-social behaviour, towards a more positive future.
Our relationship with Motiv8 began in 2012, when we provided a grant of £9,500 for the charity’s development of a new life skills kitchen for young people in the town. The state-of-the-art catering space was designed to create a safe place where they could socialise while developing catering, budgeting and other life skills.
