Grants to support homeless people
Homeless charities can now apply for grants of up to £5,000 for projects that aim to help homeless people resume a normal life. The grants are available for capital costs and examples of previously supported organisations include the Booth Centre, an advice and activity centre for homeless people in Manchester, where people undertake education and training courses as well as receiving advice and food, which received a grant of £1,500 to transform the centre with new lighting, a new water heater and new decoration; and a grant of £3,000 to the Amber Foundation to enable the Foundation to buy new bedroom furniture for their residential centre in Devon, where every year over 60 unemployed, homeless young people are able to rebuild their lives and gain the motivation, confidence, self-esteem and skills for independent living. Applications are accepted from Homeless charities with an annual turnover of less than £1 million. The closing date for applications is the 15th March 2019.
