OCF is seeking to award grants, between £5,000 and £25,000, around tackling the causes of homelessness or to support move-on housing. These will be funded from our Community Resilience Fund, set up during the pandemic.
Rough sleepers were brought into emergency accommodation during the last year’s various lockdowns. As this provision comes to an end, OCF is keen to support work that prevents a return to the streets and encourage grant applications that give longer-term support, rather than immediate relief.
We will fund ongoing core costs, project or programme work, and ongoing running costs that provide a demonstrable contribution towards tackling the causes of homelessness or the provision of move on housing or support. We may allocate a grant of up to £75,000 for a collaborative bid.
Closing date: Wednesday 16th June 2021 at midday
