The Homelessness Transition Fund has launched a new fund designed to help homelessness charities that facing rising demands for their services amid cuts in their funding.
The Future Ready fund is open to voluntary sector organisations that work with homeless people: it will make grants from £5,000 to £25,000.
According to The Homelessness Transition Fund, six out of ten homelessness projects have had their budgets cut in 2011.
The fund is seeking applications that will enable organisations to:
· Adopt new ways of working or build their skills base
· Form new partnerships with other organisations
· Test new approaches that will attract funding
· Make difficult decisions about their future
· Improve business planning or collect evidence to show the importance of their work
The Homelessness Transition Fund was set up in 2011 to help support the Government’s rough sleeping strategy ‘Vision to end rough sleeping: No Second Night Out nationwide’. Administered by Homeless Link, the umbrella body for homelessness charities, and supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government, the Fund has distributed £11.6 million since it launched in 2011.
