Helping End Homelessness will award grants to strategic projects that operate across one or more local authority areas in urban and rural settings that seek to redesign services to make homelessness rare, brief and non-recurrent. They will be person-centred and will be delivered by multi-agency partnerships.
Homelessness can affect anyone and be caused by a variety of factors. We have defined homelessness as ‘not having a home’. A person who is homeless may include someone who is:
- sleeping rough
- staying with friends or family
- staying in a hostel, night shelter or B&B
- squatting (because someone has no legal right to stay)
- being at risk of violence or abuse in your home
- living in poor conditions that affect your health
- living apart from your family because you don't have a place to live together.
We encourage applicants to consider specific priorities to focus their projects on including service innovation, person-centred support, supporting tenants and landlords in the private rented sector, trauma informed environments, reducing discrimination and prejudice, and rural homelessness.
We are holding three events across Wales where we can answer any questions you may have, but more importantly it’s an opportunity for you to network and start building partnerships with other organisations thinking about applying. Please contact us as soon as possible to register your interest in the programme and to register to attend an event.
