Despite a sector still in its early years and one that initially attracted scepticism from traditional property investors, Build to Rent (BTR) is coming out of 2020 as one of the most resilient areas of the property market. Here’s a look at how it has performed and what the experts are saying.
LD Events actively supports a number of charitable and not for profit causes. Sectors of particular interest are Homelessness, organisations that offer opportunities to those from disadvantaged backgrounds, and those which promote equality in the Property Sector.
You Make It
You Make it empowers young unemployed women, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, with the confidence, skills, networks, knowledge, and experiences needed to realise their passions and pursue their goals. A holistic and uplifting approach to job seeking puts individuality and self-esteem at its core. This ensures that all women, regardless of background, have access to the same opportunities to lead happy, independent and fulfilled lives.
Women Talk Real Estate
Visibility brings about better business opportunities, challenges stereotypes and provides role models for upcoming generations. Women Talk Real Estate is a non profit organisation dedicated to increasing the visibility of women in the European real estate industry.
Streets of London
Streets of London funds specialist support for people who are homeless in London, and raises awareness about homelessness. The charity puts on live events, including charity concerts which give music fans the opportunity to see big-name acts performing in intimate venues for a great cause. Ellie Goulding, Dan Smith (Bastille), Justin Young (The Vaccines) and Ralph McTell are the charity's ambassadors. These gigs have featured incredible line-ups, with special guest appearances from members of Bastille, Mumford & Sons and Years & Years, as well as artists including James Blunt, Craig David, Jess Glynne, George Ezra, Rudimental, Jessie Ware, John Newman, Tom Odell, Jack Garratt, Laura Mvula, Birdy, Kodaline and Kwabs.
