Ideas Fund

Ideas Fund

Our Ideas Fund is here to help you access funding to turn an idea that will improve the situation for people experiencing homelessness into reality. You can use it to develop creative solutions and new ways of working.

Our funding ranges from £200 to £10,000, for ideas big and small. Your idea could be a tiny part of getting someone back on their feet, or it could be something much bigger.

Read our guide for advice on applying to the Ideas Fund.
