LandAid’s Build to Rent Pathfinder is designed to unite and engage the property and wider built environment industry to expand the number of vital homes available to young people who are ready for independent living.
The initiative was launched in 2021 because we know that many young people facing homelessness are in employment, education, or training, or are ready to do so, but despite this, many are unable to secure private tenancies due to their financial status or lack of permanent address. This means that these young people often find themselves living in supported housing or hostels that they no longer need and are desperate to leave.
Sometimes young people simply need a helping hand – a route out of homelessness.
This is where the Build to Rent Pathfinder seeks to make a difference.
By partnering with socially minded organisations willing to allocate a number of tenure-blind flats, LandAid aims to support 100 young people into independent living this year.
