    Story

    When 20 year old entrepreneur Liv Conlon learnt that 80,000 families will wake up in temporary accommodation such as hostels this Christmas, the young founder of ThePropertyStagers felt compelled to do something.

    Partnering with the charity Glasgow City Mission and Homefinder UK, a non-profit national mobility scheme who specialise in finding permanent homes for homeless households and social housing applicants, Liv has launched the 100 Home Christmas Makeover.

    The mission? To help bring a true festive spirit into the temporary homes of 100 families in London and Glasgow, by providing items donated by homeware brands, including Christmas trees, lights and soft furnishings to uplift their living space.

    “I’ve been fortunate to achieve success early on through entrepreneurship, and I spend my days making over homes with my team. So when I learnt of just how many people in the UK will be waking up in homes which are impermanent - buildings like hostels - whilst they wait to be housed, it reinforced just how fortunate so many of us are to have a place to call home.

    “I believe strongly that business has a responsibility to contribute to society and give purpose as much meaning as profit. We can all make a difference if we utilise the skills and talents we use in business, for good. It’s a real privilege to be able to help,” says Liv.

    Ninesh Muthiah, Home Connections & Homefinder UK’s CEO, explains why they were keen to support Liv with this initiative:

    “Homefinder UK has helped over 350 homeless families find permanent homes across the UK. However, there are thousands more families with children who will spend this winter in temporary accommodation. Through this initiative we hope to be able to bring some comfort and festive cheer to some of those suffering from the housing crisis.”

    Liv is delighted to be supported by Sainsburys, Argos, Yohan May Interiors, Sienna Interiors and David Phillips who have contributed to the appeal. Further donations are required from brands to help bring festive spirit into the homes of families awaiting permanent housing. Donations of products such as lamps, Christmas trees, decorations and lights, cushions and art, bedspreads and throws are all appreciated.
