London Youth Homelessness Support Fund 2023

LandAid and StreetSmart are inviting charities in London to apply to our 2023 Youth Homelessness Support Fund for grants of between £10k-£50k.

We would be really keen to hear from projects which meet some, or all of, the following criteria:
  • Creating additional bed spaces for young people along the positive pathway,
  • Support young people into accommodation (emergency, supported or move-on accommodation),
  • Help ensure young people do not become homeless in the first place,
  • Work with cohorts of young people where there is an identified growing homelessness need in London currently (i.e. young women, young people who identify as LBGTQIA+),
  • Where our funding will make a tangible difference to the projects sustainability.
Project information
  • Any project we fund must take place within the Greater London area,
  • Projects can be revenue, capital or a mixture of the two,
  • They should not last more than 12 months,
  • We can match-fund or fully-fund projects,
  • We do not retrospectively fund projects, fund projects which are the duty of statutory funders, or projects you could fund yourselves,
  • We welcome partnership applications with an identified lead partner who will hold the funding and duties.

 Here are some examples of projects we have funded in the past.

Apply by 5pm, Friday 16 June

You can save the application form and return to the document as needed. We may be in touch later in the month to ask for additional documentation, particularly for capital project proposals. All candidates will be contacted by the end of July to confirm if their application was successful.
