Projects working to alleviate homelessness in the East of England could now benefit from a grant of up to £10k, thanks to a new fund that has launched this week.

Hopestead, the charity with the mission of ending homelessness in the East of England, has announced the first round of grant funding that will support projects in the region which are aligned with its aims.

Applications are invited specifically from registered charities, social enterprises, and community based not for profit ventures.

Hopestead is looking to support organisations who can provide access to a safe place to live, tackle the causes and impacts of homelessness – as well as homelessness itself – or empower people who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness to take control and get past the challenges in their way.

They are also keen to invest in projects which enhance communities, and give people connections to build relationships, solve problems and try new things to create a sense of belonging that makes a house a forever home.

The new funding underlines Hopestead’s commitment to working in partnership as CEO, Marie-Claire Delbrouque explained:

“We want to end homelessness in the East of England – but know we can’t do it alone. It is only by working in partnership with other organisations that share our commitment that we can meet our ambitious goal together.

“Which is why we’re so pleased to launch our grant funding and offer practical and significant support to projects that share our vision.

“We know that there are so many incredible charities, social enterprises, and not for profit organisations that are doing amazing work to support people who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness in this region. Our funding allows us to invest in their work, and together, make a difference. Because we believe that everyone deserves place to call home.”
