We’re pleased to announce Associate Architect, Sophie Jarzebowski has joined LandAid’s South West Regional Board.
LandAid is the property industry charity working to end youth homelessness in the UK. They bring together businesses and individuals from across the industry to support charities delivering life-changing projects for young people who are or have been homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness.
Through a unique network of corporate partners, they invest funding and expertise where they can achieve lasting impact.
As a former Chair of RIBA Bristol and Bath, Sophie will bring an in-depth knowledge of the local architectural network to LandAid’s board, as well as eight years working on architectural projects and experience of delivering social value.
On her appointment, Sophie said:
Last year, 122,000 16–24-year-olds reported themselves as homeless or at risk of homelessness in the UK. I would like to play a small part in reducing these statistics. I’m looking forward to supporting the SW Regional Board for LandAid, using my enthusiasm and network to raise awareness for youth homelessness.
On 2nd March, Sophie is braving LandAid’s biggest ever SleepOut alongside five other volunteers from Stride Treglown; Rachel Bell, Pierre Wassenaar, Callum Swift, Mark Tagara, and Ryan Walsh.
Joining property professionals across the UK, they will all spend one night outside to help prevent young people from facing the same prospect, every night.
The SleepOut is aiming to raise £600,000 for youth homelessness projects. Stride Treglown’s volunteers are already busy raising funds through bake sales, car washes, art sales and pop up cinemas.

Young people facing homelessness need our help move than ever. If you’re interested to learn more about LandAid, reach out to Sophie.
