Action Housing

Rotherham

Grant: £150,000

The project

Action Housing provides support and housing to young ex-offenders, care leavers and people with mental health issues. Our initial £150,000 grant funded Action Housing's conversion of an office block into high quality accommodation for young people at risk of homelessness. 

Our grant created six en-suite bedrooms and learning facilities for young people, and provides tenants with construction training from a dedicated site supervisor who supports them in gaining official qualifications. 

A second LandAid grant of £25,000 was awarded in 2018, to go towards the renovation of an empty building to create three new one-bed flats for young people ready to move on from the initial project.

The impact

The impact of this project goes beyond the regeneration of a building; it can transform the lives of young people. The secure accommodation we have helped create, alongside onsite training and around-the-clock support, will set them up for a brighter future.

It's not just the tenants who benefit either. The skills that these young people learn will empower them to live independently, find employment and make an active contribution to their communities. 

This project will be funded by Pledge150.
