Hope into Action
We helped refurbish houses in four different locations to give up to 20 young people a home
LandAid supports Grimsby and Cleethorpes Area Doorstep, an organisation that helps disadvanataged young people by providing safe accommodation and learning opportunities. In 2012/13, LandAid gave a grant of £25,000 to contribute to the creation of a welcoming learning, meeting and activity space within the charity's centre.
A second LandAid grant of £130,000 was awarded in 2016/17 to the charity's 'Saved and Sound' Empty Homes project which is renovating six properties to create 11 bedrooms for young people in severe housing need, including young parents and their children.
With 60% of the charity's clients lacking any formal education, training or employment, the improved learning space is a key asset to the services Doorstep can offer. Around 750 young local people at risk of homelessness will benefit from better opportunities through the learning space part-funded by LandAid.
