Apply for free property advice

LandAid makes it easy for charities in need of property advice to find talented property professionals looking to volunteer their skills. Through our free property advice service, we help charities working with homeless and disadvantaged young people to better manage, maintain and improve their buildings. 

In the past year we've matched 28 local charities with property companies looking to give their skills for free. As well as saving the charities over a million pounds, the free property advice also helped build confidence - after participating in the scheme 70% of charities said they felt more assured in dealing with property issues. Read our success stories.

From asset managers to surveyors, we work hard to find the property company best suited to your charity's needs. And the programme benefits our property professionals too - they get the opportunity to hone their skills, build morale and teamwork and connect with a local charity. In fact, everyone who has taken part in the scheme has told us they'd get involved again.
