Ideas Board

Ideas Board

We believe that frontline workers are in a unique position to identify solutions which take into account both the client’s need as well as the practicalities of service delivery. The ideas board is therefore an opportunity for you, as a frontline worker, to put forward an idea which you think will improve the situation for those facing homelessness or housing issues. 

The idea could be big or small – it could be just one small part of getting someone back on their feet, or it could be something more ambitious. We are looking for creative solutions, to test new ways of working or to release opportunities which might not normally be accessible.

We will fund ideas between £200 - £10,000! 

For guidance on submitting an idea, read our guide HERE
