Click the drop downs below for answers to some frequently asked questions about the Training Fund.

Can my organisation apply more than once a year?

Yes. We assess each application based on its individual merits. Sometimes budget restraints may mean we refuse repeat applications. 

Can I apply for conferences or events?

Yes. If the conference or event supports learning that will benefit your work with people experiencing homelessness, then we will consider your application. 

Can you fund access to clinical supervision or other reflective practice or mentoring?

No. Unfortunately we cannot currently fund this through the Training Fund. We are committed to frontline worker wellbeing and currently working with the Centre for Homeless Impact undertaking a pilot project on best practice in supporting frontline worker wellbeing. We will be evaluating the pilot and looking at ways to provide resources for wellbeing. 

Can you pay the Training Provider for me?

No. Payments can only be made to your employer who must pay for the training or course on your behalf. 

Can I apply for a grant towards study that I am self-funding?

Under some conditions. We want to support frontline workers’ professional development, however, we believe that your employer should also support this, therefore we can only approve applications for grants towards self-funded study if your employer has authorised protected time for your study during work hours. We will require written confirmation of this from your manager.

Can I apply for funding towards CIH Level 3 Accreditation?

Yes. If you are applying for this course with Homeless Link we will not release funds until we have confirmation that you have secured a place on the course.

How do I know if my organisation can fund the training?

If you are unsure please speak to your manager. We want to know whether your organisation has budget available for staff training and development, that can be used to fund your course.
