Homeless Link to deliver new Housing First grants programme with funding from Comic Relief
Monday, 24 June 2019 - 2:15pm
The grants, which will be between £20,000 and £100,000, will be available to existing providers of Housing First and used to test new approaches within current delivery.
The programme is now open for first stage submissions.
In response, Rick Henderson, Chief Executive of Homeless Link, said:
“We are delighted to receive this money from Comic Relief, which we will use to fund the vital work Housing First projects are doing across the country.
“Housing First is one of the most important recent innovations in tackling homelessness. It is proven to work for people with long histories of homelessness and rough sleeping where contact with services has previously been unsuccessful.
“These grants will strengthen and support services to deliver Housing First and their work to end homelessness for hundreds of people.”
