Leeds Action to Create Homes (Latch)

Leeds

An empty, derelict house transformed into a fantastic home

Grant: £100,000

The project

LandAid and JLL are helping fund building work for Latch's new project, ‘Creating Homes from Empty Properties’. The new project involves renovating homes to provide safe accommodation for eight young people who are homeless. 

The impact

Once the properties are fully modernised and furnished, they will provide eight young people with a home of their own, a place where they can begin to make a positive change in their lives.

Prospective tenants will be able to volunteer on the building site and gain on-the-job training in joinery, plastering and decoration. This will give them valuable skills and confidence while undertaking accredited training to prepare them for the future.
