LandAid’s vision is a country where no young person is homeless. LandAid aims to bring about lasting change by helping tackle the causes of youth homelessness and contributing to the provision of safe supported housing for those who need it most.
LandAid award grants to outstanding projects on the ground that work to give young people the shelter and support they need.
Over the next 3 years LandAid intends to commit up to £2 million each year for building work to help front line organisations providing accommodation across the UK to renovate or create a total of 450 bed spaces for young people facing homelessness.
LandAid is seeking to establish a UK wide network of Charity Partners who provide living accommodation for young people who are at risk of homelessness. These organisations will form the focus of the grant giving over the next two to three years.
In this 2017 application round, LandAid is inviting organisations to apply to become Charity Partners. The application involves describing your current work and outlining one or more accommodation projects you are likely to need grant funding for over the next two years.
LandAid is also inviting organisations to apply now for grant funding of up to £75,000 for building work for a specific accommodation project. Funding will be available in batches over the next four to twelve months.
Applicants who are not yet ready to apply for funding for a specific project can still apply to become a Charity Partner. If successful, they will be ‘pre-qualified’ to be invited to apply for grant funding in 2018.
LandAid will allocate funding for building work under two grant strands:
Renovation: existing properties in need of refurbishment which will provide accommodation, support, and in some cases training, for young people who have been or are at risk of becoming homeless.
New buildings: new safe, secure and affordable accommodation for young people who are experiencing homelessness. Designed and built using traditional methods on site or using modular or ‘precision’ construction off site in factories.
Who can apply?
UK organisations with charitable objectives, including:
• UK registered charities
• UK registered societies, community benefit societies, ‘pre-commencement societies’, industrial and provident societies
• UK registered Community Interest Companies Limited by Guarantee
