What we do

Help The Homeless makes grants to charitable organisations with the aim of returning homeless people to the community and enabling them to resume a normal life.

These organisations vary from small groups to established residential or training facilities, and you can see some examples in our Success Stories section.

Our History

Help The Homeless was founded in 1975, since when we have made grants totalling more than £2 million. We are a cost efficient charity with very small overheads, and so able to distribute a large proportion of our funds to the organisations nationwide that help some of the UK's most disadvantaged people.

We rely on donations to continue this work, so if you are able to support us in any way, please visit the Supporting Us page.

Applying for funding

Grants from Help the Homeless are available to small and medium-sized charitable organisations. We do not make grants to individuals. We fund capital costs of projects with grants of up to £5,000 - have a look at the Success Stories section for examples.
