Helping to Deliver Housing First Services – Strategic Grants from Henry Smith23-Sep-2019
The Henry Smith Charity is continuing to accept applications for grants for this season’s round of its Housing First Programme.
The Housing First Programme from the Henry Smith Charity is a focused grants programme designed to support small to medium sized organisations (between £100K and £5m annual income) to deliver Housing First services.
Housing First offers stable, affordable housing alongside ongoing, intensive person-centred support to enable people to keep their housing and avoid returning to homelessness.
The Services help people with significant multiple and enduring needs – those for whom other services have failed and homelessness is a long-term enduring issue.
Henry Smith is accepting proposals from organisations currently delivering Housing First services to increase provision and enable services to become more sustainable and effective.
They are also interested in applications from organisations planning to deliver a Housing First service for the first time: The intention from Henry Smith is that through these grants people who experience multiple and complex needs are helped to leave homelessness behind for good.
Deadline for Expressions of Interest is 4th November 2019.
