Help the Homeless, a national charity which aims to help homeless people throughout the United Kingdom resume a normal life, is currently accepting funding applications from small and medium sized registered charities and voluntary organisations (those with a turnover of under £1m per annum).
Grants of up to £5,000 are available towards capital costs to support projects that assist disadvantaged individuals in their return to mainstream society, through residential or training facilities.
All applicants must use the official form and clearly describe the aims and structure of their organisation, their future plans and specific details of how any grant money will be spent. A copy of the latest available audited accounts is also required.
Previous projects supported include a grant of £3,000 to the Amber Foundation to enable the Foundation to buy new bedroom furniture for their residential centre in Devon. Every year, over 60 unemployed, homeless young people are able to rebuild their lives at the residential centre and gain the motivation, confidence, self-esteem and skills for independent living.
A grant of £2000 has also been awarded to Spires, a South London homeless charity, towards the cost of providing their daily services to clients, including food and clothing.
The next application deadline is the 15th March 2016.
