Are you a registered charity, social enterprise, or community group in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, or Cambridgeshire? Grants of up to £10,000 are available for projects that help us deliver one or more of our priorities, which are:
- Preventing homelessness (addressing causes, impacts, and homelessness itself)
- Increasing bed spaces for those experiencing homelessness
- Reducing or alleviating the impact of homelessness on children
We know that we are far more likely to be successful in our goal of tackling homelessness and its causes through partnership with others that share our values and motivations.
Homelessness is on the rise, with almost 20,000 people recorded as homeless in the east of England – an increase of 15% from the start of the 2022/23 recording period. Across England, the figure is 286,000, an increase of 5% from the previous quarter.
These increases reflect increasing pressures on homelessness charities and organisations, with the rising cost of living making it hard to meet the huge increases in demand.
That’s what Hope Funds is for; to support local organisations with projects that align with our values and core objectives.
Visit our website (link in bio) to read our Grant Funding Guidance, and if your project meets the criteria and aligns with our core objectives, then please apply for Hope Funds before Friday, 30 June. And stay tuned throughout June for more about the importance of our strategic objectives.
