We support charities with an annual turnover of less than £1 million that provide homes for individuals in need.

Applicant organisations must:

  • Have an annual turnover of no more than one million pounds
  • Have legal charitable status
  • Operate within England, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man
  • Provide accommodation at a rent that is genuinely affordable for people on low incomes
  • Be unable to pay for the planned work from other sources
  • Meet a real housing need
  • Be acting on their own behalf not to fund other individuals, charities or organisations

We do not provide support to:

  • Individuals directly, or to organisations or groups where the recipients of the funding benefit directly e.g. self-help groups, fully mutual co-operatives, community or co-housing groups
  • Organisations that discriminate on the grounds of ethnicity, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability
