On Thursday 27th February, Fiera Real Estate will be braving one night out outside, to help prevent young people from facing the same prospect, every night. This year, around 86,000 young people in the UK will be homeless. But what does that really mean? Homelessness is more than just sleeping on the streets. While this can be the most dangerous, and most visible, form of homelessness, it is just the tip of the iceberg. Homelessness means not having a place to call home a place that is private, secure, affordable and where you have a right to stay.
Our CEO, Alex Price, will be making a speech to over 300 property professionals on the night and he has agreed to do so in fancy dress if we reach our £2,000 fundraising target! Make sure you leave your vote in the comment section when you donate. Choose your favourite from these options: a clown, superman or scuba diving outfit!
Why is Fiera Real Estate sponsoring the London SleepOut?
We are sponsoring the London SleepOut because, as a business whose core mission is to create and manage real estate in the UK, youth homelessness is an issue that is close to our heart. Supporting the SleepOut underpins our continued commitment to work with LandAid to end youth homelessness.
Why should people get behind the fundraising for
Homelessness is a reality for many young people in London and other cities, but it is a problem that we can address and we are committed to doing so. By braving just one night out in the cold, we can provide many nights of support and shelter for all those young people who otherwise face a night on the streets or in temporary accommodation. We have the ability to help change young lives for the better.
