The National Lottery Community Fund has decided to pause Helping End Homelessness

In April, we announced our decision to pause the Helping End Homelessness programme in Wales due to the need to prioritise time and resources to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. We also advised that we would review the situation in three months.

Since pausing the programme, Welsh Government announced a new £20 million fund to transform homelessness services. and ensure no-one need return to rough sleeping. They also published guidance for phase two of Wales’ response to homelessness in response to the pandemic.

We have now started the programme review, taking in to account the challenges the sector has experienced and the new Welsh Government guidance. We feel it is essential that we gather views from the sector on the implications of these developments as we look to ensure that National Lottery funding remains relevant and adds value to the changed landscape.

We do not currently have a fixed date to reopen the programme.

In the meantime, you can still contact us at homelessness@tnlcommunityfund.org.uk or by calling our advice line.
