We are pleased to announce that Land Securities are partnering No Second Night Out.
As the leading property developer and investor in London, our business is about providing buildings – buildings for people. Those that work in them. Those that shop in them. Those that live in them, and those that live in the communities surrounding them.
No Second Night Out is about getting people back into buildings, offering them a permanent route off the streets and out of homelessness, by becoming the first official partner, and continuing to support other local homelessness charities, we share the Mayors ambition to eliminate rough sleeping in the capital.

We are pleased to announce that The Berkeley Group are partnering No Second Night Out.
The Berkeley Foundation was launched on 4 March 2011. This was the culmination of a long-held ambition to create our own philanthropic foundation. The purpose of the Foundation is to support young people and their communities across London and the South East of England.
Since its first year, the Berkeley Foundation has donated and committed £1.8 million to over 30 separate charities, helping to tackle some of the big social issues facing our society.
The Foundation now invests in three different ways: through a small group of major strategic partnerships and by making one-off grants.
At Berkeley, we recognise the responsibility we have to make a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate. When development is carried out successfully, it is inherently a force for good and helps rejuvenate society. Creating great places generates the pride and confidence to give communities a sense of optimism, hope and opportunity, as well as providing much needed housing and fresh economic activity.
This passion for placemaking drives all that we do at the Berkeley Group. It is the basis of our Vision 2020 strategy and puts customers and communities at the heart of our work.
The Berkeley Group, July 2012
