How we award grants

LandAid's vision is a country where no young person is homeless. We aim to bring about lasting change by tackling the causes of youth homelessness and providing safe, supported housing for those who need it most. To drive this, we award grants to outstanding projects on the ground that work to give young people the shelter and support they deserve. 

We allocate funding under four key themes: 

Prevent: Projects with an effective track-record in tackling the root causes of homelessness, often working with young people who have been permanently excluded from school and those who are in or leaving care.

Protect: Projects working with young people who are currently homeless, particularly those who are on the streets and in immediate danger.

Provide: Projects which provide accommodation, support and training for those who have been homeless.

Profile: Projects which raise awareness of homelessness by giving young people a platform to have their voices and experiences heard.

Throughout the grant process, we carefully monitor and evaluate our projects to ensure we're making the biggest difference possible.

The grant making process

We'll announce opportunities for funding on our website, in our newsletter and on social media. All opportunities will be based around our four key grant themes. 

Clear guidance on who can apply for funding and how to apply will be issued with each opportunity. 

Our grants team is supported by a Grants Committee, consisting of senior property industry members and trustees who meet four times a year to allocate funding to projects that best meet the set criteria. 

LandAid is committed to making a difference to youth homelessness and is careful to ensure our projects are cost-effective, working in areas of high deprivation and giving young people the best opportunities and support available.
