#LandAidXmas – our appeal

This Christmas the UK faces a child poverty and homelessness crisis - and we need your help.

That's 4 million children living in acute poverty in the eight largest economy in the world. Let's think about what that means for a moment.

Inverdale opens Eikon

On Friday I attended the grand opening of Eikon's beautiful new offices at Fulbrook School in Surrey. After several years of planning and six months of construction, supported by a £20,000 refurbishment grant from LandAid, the new centre will enable Eikon to double their services and reach out to more young people across the county.

Celebrating pro bono

This week (3 - 7 November) is National Pro Bono Week, which celebrates the free legal advice given by law firms to communities across the UK. LandAid launched its own pro bono programme in July this year. While the legal profession has a long tradition of giving pro bono advice, it is not as established in other parts of the property industry.
