Landaid emergency Covid-19 fund

7 April 2020

Helical is very pleased to be a Founding Partner of the LandAid Emergency COVID-19 Fund being launched today. The fund aims to raise £1m to support young homeless people in crisis. 

The fund will enable charities up and down the country to meet the needs of young homeless people through this crisis, from basic necessities to emergency support: food, a safe space to isolate or recuperate, money to pay bills, and vital mental health support. Every penny raised will go directly to charities helping vulnerable young people in our communities who are suffering severe hardship as a result of COVID-19.

LandAid has worked for more than 30 years to bring the property industry together to support projects delivering life-changing services for young people who are or have been homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness in the future.

Gerald Kaye, Chief Executive at Helical said:

“At this critical time Helical are pleased to support this great initiative by LandAid to provide emergency food, accommodation and safety to vulnerable young people who have nowhere else to turn for help”

Paul Morrish, Chief Executive at LandAid, said:

“Today, we are asking the industry to stand together with its charity to support young homeless people face the COVID-19 crisis across the country.  We understand that these are difficult times, and the effects on the economy and sector, on people, business and families will be acute and far-reaching, but we also know that the homelessness charities we support are facing huge challenges to continue to help vulnerable young people. We hope that the support of the property industry could make a real contribution to those in society who really need it today, and in the coming months.”
