Grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 are being offered to support local housing projects that help the most vulnerable by preventing people from losing their homes, helping people in to a home and supporting people to thrive within the home environment.

  • Core costs, including running and facility costs, office equipment, supplies, any travel and accommodation, printing.

  • Staff costs for the lead partner - including budget for staffing, full-time staff, external consultants, capacity building/training and other related expenses, eg, translation.
