Barnardo's Gap Homes

Barnardo's Gap Homes

Glasgow

Barnardo's is a children's charity which aims to transform the lives of vulnerable young people, by supporting them and giving them the right opportunities.

The charity works closely with care leavers who need housing or are at risk of homelessness, providing them with a range of support services.

LandAid's £75,000 grant will help fund the building of four new one-bed Gap Homes for care leavers aged 12-26 in Glasgow. 

The Gap Home project will provide manageable, affordable accommodation and time and space for young people which will help them to transition into independent living. 

Barnardo's will provide consistent practical and emotional support for the young people, helping them to develop resilience and practical skills.
