We live in a world where digital connectivity is more essential than ever.
Yet sadly we know that many young people facing homelessness do not have access to this facility. Applying for benefits, getting a job, or generally staying in touch with people is a daily challenge.
At LandAid, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to use technology to live, learn, work, and thrive.
With October seeing awareness weeks around digital connectivity, including, Get Online Week and Digital Inclusion Week, this felt timely to explore the varying ways that we at LandAid are utilising technology from the property and built environment industry and striving to enhance digital connectivity amongst young people experiencing homelessness.
Around two years ago we kicked off an initiative to harness the growing ecosystem of technology companies and teams called the LandAid Tech Network. Today we have over 50 member firms and I think it is fair to say that we have gotten off to a strong start.
