Help the Homeless Grant Scheme

Posted on Updated on

Deadline: 15 March 2019

Grants for capital projects are available to small and medium-sized charities registered in the UK working to assist homeless people to rebuild their lives and return to the community.

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.

Help The Homeless was founded in 1975, since when they have made grants totalling more than £2 million. It is a cost efficient charity with very small overheads, and so able to distribute a large proportion of funds to the organisations nationwide that help some of the UK’s most disadvantaged people.

The annual deadlines are 15 March, 15 June, 15 September, and 15 December. Funding is for capital items and projects.
