LandAid, the property industry charity, is calling on over 1,000 property professionals across the UK to come together to endure one night outside and SleepOut on Thursday, 2nd March to raise funds to support young people between 16-25 years facing homelessness.
LandAid’s Manchester SleepOut will fund the build of desperately needed homes for young families (under 25s with children) who are, or who have experienced homelessness.
This year, the LandAid SleepOut is bigger than ever, bringing together property professionals from across the North West at a brand-new location, Sale Rugby Football Club.
All funds raised at the Manchester SleepOut will go towards a local project supporting young people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in the North West.
Each participant will be asked to raise over £166 – the cost of funding one desperately needed bed space for a month. Every penny raised will take LandAid one step closer to giving young people the structure and support they need, to build a brighter future.
Wide support has already been shown across the property and real estate industries, including Manchester regional sponsor, Addleshaw Goddard.
“Addleshaw Goddard has been a longstanding supporter of LandAid and its work. This year, we decided to endure one night outside at LandAid’s Sleepout on 2nd March 2023. Whilst this is a mere glimpse into the hardship people continue to face, we hope to raise awareness of youth homelessness and support our local community in Greater Manchester.”
122,000 young people approached their local council for housing support last year alone. Sadly, many of these were left unsupported and therefore rely on the vital care that charities provide in local communities across the UK. Now, this support is more valuable than ever.
