Ending Youth Homelessness: LandAid’s Plan 2024-2029

We exist to help end youth homelessness in the UK.

Yet, despite everything we are doing, as a society we are failing to stem the tide of youth homelessness or solve the crisis.​​

We need to do things differently.

Our vision

An end to youth homelessness in the UK.

Our mission

Unite the property industry to end youth homelessness.

 

Why LandAid?

We are the only charity able to aggregate and multiply the property industry’s effort and funding to maximise impact, nationwide.​ We do this by bringing together our extraordinary network of remarkable companies and individuals from across all sections of the property industry, to leverage, channel, and multiply their unique capacity to tackle youth homelessness. Our expertise allows us to target investment and support to the very best charities tackling homelessness, right across the UK, empowering them to maximise their impact.

We will provide homes, jobs and skills, maximising our impact through three key areas.

    of social value created

The youth homelessness crisis is getting worse.

There are a many reasons for this. Some include:

  • Economic, legislative, health and infrastructure inequalities, 
  • Family or relationship break down,
  • Difficulty in accessing complex mental health support,
  • Cuts to charities and local authorities,
  • Lack of social housing,
  • Increasingly unaffordable private rented sector,
  • No UK wide government plan to tackle youth homelessness, and no nation-wide plan for England and Northern Ireland.

Who are the young people experiencing homelessness?

Young people aged 16-25 who have no permanent, fixed address, have been served an eviction notice, or are at risk of sleeping rough on the streets.

What does an ‘end to youth homelessness’ mean?

It is impossible to guarantee that no young person will ever experience homelessness. Instead, we aim to ensure that everything is done to prevent homelessness, and where this is not possible, such experiences should be rare, brief and non-recurring.
