Routes Out of Homelessness Grant Programmes

Through our grants, we aim to create new bedspaces for young people 16-25 who are homeless or who have experienced homelessness.

Our national Routes Out of Homelessness Grants Programme is temporarily closed. We do however have some London specific funding available.

Are you a youth homelessness charity based in London who could benefit from our latest StreetSmart funding?

Due to such high support from the hospitality industry in and around London as part of the latest StreetSmart and LandAid campaign, this means we are hosting an open funding round for Greater London based youth homelessness charities.

From Wednesday 15 May to Friday 14 June, London charities can apply for grants of between £10-£50k.

If you work for, or represent, a non-profit organisation working to support young people (16-25) who are/have been homeless, then you may be eligible to apply for one of our Routes out of Homelessness grants.

We offer three core grant programmes. They are each linked to the provision of a different type of bedspace as defined by the Positive Pathway which recognises three distinct types of accommodation: Emergency, Supported, and Independent (see diagram below).

Each of these is an important element of a holistic approach to provision, but none of them are enough on their own. For that reason we seek to fund the following grants across the UK:

  1. Safe Places Programme:  To create new/additional hosting bedspaces, generally bedspaces in the homes of individuals or families who may be volunteers or paid. These bedspaces would generally be used for emergency housing, or as a form of supported housing. 
  2. Capital Grants Programme:  To create bedspaces in properties owned by, or on a long-term lease to charitable organisations. These bedspaces could be used for emergency, supported or move-on accommodation. 
  3. Move-on Grants Programme:  To unlock bedspaces in the private, or social, rental sector. These bedspaces will be for move-on accommodation. These grants would be for charities working with young people who are ready and wanting to move forward into independent living, but face barriers in accessing rental accommodation.
