Tackling disadvantage in Cornwall
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.
Jamie’s Farm provides a caring and engaging environment on a working farm, taking kids from tough urban schools to a rural setting where they receive careful support and mentoring.
LandAid has awarded a grant of £110,000, and St James’s Place Foundation a further £45,000 - a total of £155,000 to jointly fund renovation work, to help the charity establish a second Jamie's Farm in Herefordshire.
The work includes renovations to create seven bedrooms, a kitchen to accommodate 50 people, a boot room and a central dining room space – the heart of the home.
