Preventing family breakdown in Portsmouth
From April 2016 our mission is to end youth homelessness. Will you join us?
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.
Youth homelessness is an increasingly pressing issue in Birmingham. Cuts to local authority budgets have meant vulnerable young people missing out on the vital services they need. LandAid is working with local charity St Basils to support homeless 16-25 year olds in the city.
A grant of £120,000 from LandAid and foundation partner SEGRO funded renovations and extensions to an accommodation unit on Gillott Road whilst a further £150,000 paid for refurbishments to accommodation for young mothers and their babies in crisis.
Thanks to this funding from LandAid, 17 young mothers and their babies will receive a safe place to live.
