I'm taking part in the LandAid SleepOut
On the 11th March, I am again taking part in the LandAid SleepOut to raise money to help support young people who are homeless. Of course, restrictions mean that it will not be possible to share the experience with other likeminded 'sleepouters' this year, but let's face it, it's not supposed to be fun. My effort in sleeping outside in my garden will be safe and secure and will not reflect in any way the plight of far too many young people who have found themselves in the terrible position of being without a home, without help and without hope. But I am compelled to suffer that little dose of hardship in an attempt to raise awareness and hopefully some funds to help those who need it most.
The pandemic has of course had an immense effect on all of us, on our daily lives, our businesses, our sense of security, but the impact of the pandemic has been felt even more acutely by young people who are already homeless or are facing homelessness due to circumstances for which they have little or no control. In London alone, the number of young people sleeping rough on the streets has risen by 47% since the start of the pandemic, and this is ever more evident on my travel into town during the last year.
LandAid bring the property industry together to support charities delivering life-changing services for young people who are or have been homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness in the future.
Young people facing homelessness need our support more than ever, and I would therefore appreciate your help in donating whatever you can spare to help ensure that young people are brought in from the cold this Winter.
