Help The Homeless
Deadlines: (next deadline is 15th March)
The quarterly deadlines for grant applications each year are: 15th March, 15th June, 15th September and 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.
Who can apply?
Small and medium sized registered charities.
They provide grants of up to £5,000 to support small and medium-sized UK charities that work to help homeless people rebuild their lives and re-enter society. Funding is target-ed 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.
The scheme will principally fund capital costs, but may consider revenue costs if necessary to the project.
Help the Homeless do not have a full time member of staff, so unable to enter into telephone conversations. They provide an on-line contact form and respond by e-mail as soon as possible.
Applying for funding
Help The Homeless's main funding remit is the regular allocation of grants (generally up to £5,000) for capital costs to small and medium-sized registered charities only (those with a turnover of under £1m per annum).
All applications must relate to projects that assist individuals in their return to mainstream society, rather than simply offer shelter or other forms of sustenance.
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.
Applying for funding
Grants from Help the Homeless are available to small and medium-sized charitable organisations. We do not make grants to individuals. We fund capital costs of projects with grants of up to £5,000 - have a look at the Success Stories section for examples.
