Twelve of these bed spaces will be situated in Scotland and delivered by charity partners. The RICS team, including members of RICS’ Scotland Board, members of the wider profession such as [url=https://www.shepherd.co.uk/]Shepherds Chartered Surveyors[/url], [url=http://www.rlf.co.uk/]Robinson Low Francis,[/url] the [url=https://www.pmcproperty.com/]Property Management Company,[/url] [url=http://www.weareglm.com/]GLM,[/url] [url=https://www.pmpplc.co.uk/]PMP Plc[/url] and [url=https://www.womeninproperty.org.uk/branches/central-scotland/]Women in Property[/url] will join Sleep in the Park events across Scotland, with 50% of their fundraising efforts going to [url=https://www.landaid.org/]Landaid[/url] and 50% to Social Bite.[/p][p] RICS Chief Executive Sean Tompkins, commented:[/p][p]“It’s time to stamp out homelessness, both in Scotland and the rest of the UK. As part of our 150th anniversary celebrations, RICS in the UK is working to do just that. I am therefore delighted to be joining Social Bite’s Sleep in the Park initiative to raise awareness of the pernicious reality of rough sleeping and the work we are doing as an industry to combat it. [/p][p]“All around the world, Chartered Surveyors have been using this anniversary year as a platform to talk about the profession’s positive impact on society and give back to their local communities. Through Pledge150 in Scotland, we are raising funds and sourcing unused property to give young people living on Scotland’s streets a second chance to find their feet and re-enter society. We recognise that a roof over your head is the beginning of many life changing opportunities and a source of wellbeing”[/p][p]The funds raised by RICS in Scotland through the Sleep in the Park, and events across the country, will be divided between two Scottish charity partners, the first partner announced is YMCA Glenrothes. The money will help the renovation of an empty three-bed terraced house or flat, to create three new bed spaces for young people to move on to from the charity’s fully supported hostel. The young tenants will receive support from an individual case worker to help them achieve a successful future. The charity also plans to provide training and volunteering opportunities for local unemployed people during the building work.
