Methodist Action

Blackburn

£86,000

Methodist Action is an award winning charity that supports homeless and disadvantaged young people across Lancashire. The charity refurbishes empty properties to provide safe, affordable accommodation for young people to live in and thrive, and also offers wider services to develop their skills, confidence and independence.

LandAid's £86,000 grant is enabling Methodist Action to refurbish five empty houses to provide a total of 12 en-suite bedrooms in shared houses for young people. The properties will be located in established neighbourhoods in Blackburn to provide the young people with connections, the chance to settle, engage with education or training or work, and get involved in the local community.
