2023 has been a huge year for LandAid. Thank you to all our dedicated friends in the property industry that have helped us to support more young people at risk of homelessness than ever before.
Thursday 30 November saw the second ever instalment of the LandAid Awards take place – bringing over 100 individuals from the property industry and charity sector together, for an evening of both reflection and celebration.
LandAid and StreetSmart award grants totalling over £500,000 from the 2022 campaign to charities tackling youth homelessness across the UK. The 38 grants will support young people on their journey out of homelessness towards a brighter and more stable future.
Dan Hughes, Chair of the LandAid Tech Network, explores its recent successes in utilising technology from the property and built environment industry in supporting young people experiencing homelessness, through raising funds, striving for better data, and enhancing digital connectivity.
LandAid’s latest grants funding round saw over £640,000 of support offered to youth homelessness charities across the UK. This has enabled 240 new bed spaces to be created, to support young people who have nowhere else to turn.
Paul Morrish, Chief Executive of LandAid, and the latest ambassador for the Centre for Homelessness Impact's End it With Evidence Campaign, talks about his commitment to bring together key stakeholders and utilise rigorous research to inform decision-making and tackle the challenges faced by young people experiencing homelessness.
