Catering training courses on an inner city farm
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.
Fitzrovia in Central London is renowned for its wealth, but unbeknown to many, poverty and unemployment rates are high amongst vulnerable young groups.
After 17 years of running successful practical skill projects for disadvantaged inner city young people, Fitzrovia Youth in Action is now expanding into new premises. By refurbishing a basement, Fitzrovia will create their first large communal space, enabling 300 young people to participate in education and sports activities.
LandAid is providing a grant of £100,000 along with pro bono support from the property industry to give these young people their own space at the heart of the community.
