Extended Description

Help the Homeless provides a grant scheme to support small and medium-sized UK charities that work to help homeless people rebuild their lives and re-enter society.

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.

Latest Information

Deadlines each year: 15 March, 15 June, 15 September, 15 December

Key Criteria

This fund is aimed at supporting small and medium-sized registered charities with a turnover of under £1 million per annum.

Eligible Expenditure

The scheme will principally fund capital costs, but may consider revenue costs if necessary to the project.

Projects must assist individuals in their return to mainstream society, rather than simply offering shelter or other forms of sustenance.

Applicants requiring funding for building work and refurbishment are advised to contact CRASH, the construction industry's charity for homeless people for advice.

Due to the large number of grant applications for computer equipment, applicants must first contact one of the following organisations:

If none of these organisations can assist, then a regular supplier should be asked for charity pricing.


Funding is not available to individuals.

Application Procedure

Application forms are available to download from the Help the Homeless website.

Completed application forms should be returned with a copy of the organisation's most recent audited annual accounts.
