The next closing date for applications to Help the Homeless is the 15th September 2017.
Help the Homeless is, a national Charity which aims to help homeless people throughout the United Kingdom to resume a normal life. Funding of up to £5,000 is available to small and medium sized charities and voluntary organisations towards capital costs to support projects that assist homeless individuals in their return to mainstream society, through residential or training facilities. Grants to larger charities may be considered if the project is suitable innovative and only possible for a larger organisation to develop it.
Previous projects supported 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, received a grant of £1,500 to transform the centre with new lighting, a new water heater and new decoration.
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.
