Help the Homeless Accepting Applications for Summer Round

In Funding News by Caroline Foxton

Help the Homeless provides a grant scheme to support small and medium-sized UK charities that work to help homeless people rebuild their lives, re-enter society and live a normal life.

Funding is targeted at projects to find practical ways to help disadvantaged individuals return to the community through training or residential facility provision, rather than merely providing short term shelter.

Small and medium-sized registered charities with a turnover of under £1 million per annum can apply for grants of up to £5,000.

The scheme will principally fund capital costs, but may consider revenue costs if necessary to the project. It will not fund computers or IT equipment.

Projects must assist individuals in their return to mainstream society, rather than simply offering shelter or other forms of sustenance.

Applications are considered four times a year.

The quarterly deadlines for grant applications each year are: 15th March / 15th June / 15th September / 15th December. There should be a minimum period of two years between the receipt of a decision on an application and a further application from the same organisation.
