Latch are an amazing and local charity in Leeds that really do special stuff. Latch purchase empty and rundown houses and then refurbishes them to create good quality homes for those in need.
Most of the refurbishment work is done by Latch staff and unemployed trainees. Some have construction experience already, while others learn new skills as they work on site. When they’re fully modernised and furnished, Latch properties provide energy efficient supported housing for people who are homeless or in housing need and are ready to make positive changes in their lives.
But they do more than just build gaffs – their aftercare team is made up of experienced support workers who assist people with a wide range of mental and physical issues, helping them settle into their new homes and get back on their feet.
By renovating rundown houses as well as being a responsible landlord – Latch really are an amazing charity that you should get behind. Learn more about what they do and how you can donate here.
