Help the Homeless
Help the Homeless, a national Charity which aims to help homeless people throughout the United Kingdom has announced that the next deadline for applications is the 15th March 2015. Grants of up to £5,000 are available towards capital costs to support projects that help disadvantaged 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.
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.
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, 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; and Furniture Plus in Fife, a charity based ReUse and Recycling Social Enterprise for Furniture Household and Electrical items, which received a grant of £2,000 towards the construction of a new workshop for training.
