Thames Laboratories are very pleased to have signed a pledge with LandAid to help end youth homelessness.
The charity brings the property industry together to help protect young people on the streets, provide accommodation and training and tackle the root causes of homelessness.
Thames will help local charities by providing free Asbestos Surveys. Many charities lack the time, expertise and experience needed to manage, maintain and improve their buildings. Therefore, our surveys will make a real difference. LandAid matches the property skills of each individual company with local charities.
Managing Director of Thames Laboratories, John Richards, said “We have recently been made aware of LandAid through our work with RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and we are pleased to begin working with such a great charity which really does change young lives. It means a lot to us to be able to give something back to the community. We look forward to beginning our projects.”
This year, around 100,000 young people will find themselves homeless. This is a figure that we can change if we all work together. LandAid makes an impact on thousands of young people each year. In 2016/2017, 8,833 young people were supported through LandAid-funded projects, 2,873 young people were helped into work and 258 young people received accommodation.
