Property Charity LandAid has launched a new empty properties Fund.
A total of £1 million is available to fund work across the UK which turns empty properties into supported accommodation for young people who are at severe risk of becoming homeless.
LandAid welcomes applications from organisations with experience in renovating empty properties.
To be eligible applicants need to be either UK registered charities or UK registered societies, community benefit societies, ‘pre-commencement societies’, industrial and provident societies.
LandAid will not fund statutory organisations, churches or individuals. LandAid will consider funding towards capital costs of the building work for the refurbishment and conversion of empty properties and salary costs related to the building work e.g. to organise on-site construction training opportunities.
Applicants can apply for grants between £50,000 and £150,000. The main focus of this grant round is to provide capital funding to part fund or fully fund building work. Up to 25% of the total grant applied for can be for a contribution towards a related salary.
The closing date for applications is 10am on Monday 16th November 2015.
