Grants to provide winter accommodation for people experiencing homelessness


Funding of up to £100,000 is available to homelessness, faith, community and voluntary sector organisations to provide single room and COVID-19 secure accommodation for people experiencing homelessness this winter.

“The Fund aims to ensure that faith and community groups who provide winter accommodation can this year provide single room COVID-19 secure accommodation, and will also support services that prevent rough sleeping and work with people sleeping rough in innovative ways. These will build on proven approaches such as hosting, shared houses, support working and accessing the private rented sector.

“The funding cannot be used to support traditional, dormitory-style night shelter provision and will seek to produce a legacy for the future of winter homelessness support.”
