Funding

We provide funding to help you in your work; from small grants through the VRF to help with preventing eviction and accessing accommodation, to larger grants through the Ideas Fund - to turn your ideas into reality. We also provide funding to support your professional development through our events, training and shadowing funds.

What we fund

In March 2018 we funded an event called Slaying the Dragon through the Events Fund. 

Almost 150 people attended the event, many of those with lived experience of homelessness. There were lots of people working within homelessness too. The diversity of people attending and their experiences, and participatory nature of the workshops meant there were lots of interesting interactions, discussions and proposals.

New ideas emerged through the event and are informing the development of a possible national network of homeless people in Scotland. You can read more about the event here.

After the event, the group submitted an idea to the Ideas Fund called 'Peer Led Advocacy Network' (PLAN), which was recently signed off by the steering group for funding. 

We'll keep you posted on how it goes!
