Throughout the year, Housing Justice administers a range of different Grants that Night Shelters can apply to.

You can check back throughout the year, or get an alert when a new Grant opens by subscribing to our WNS Network newsletter.

Equipping Shelters Move On Fund 2021/22

The Equipping Shelters Move On Fund 2021/22 aims to improve sustainable accommodation outcomes in London shelter projects for groups that traditionally face particular challenges in accessing sustainable move on options.

Sustainable accommodation outcomes are considered as non-emergency accommodation, with an intended stay of at least 6 months or as part of a pathway to longer term support (e.g. bridging accommodation for supported housing). This accommodation should be suitable to the assessed needs of the person concerned.

This fund is to support faith and community organisations that are providing emergency accommodation during the winter of 2021/22. Typically, these organisations will be part of the Housing Justice Winter Night Shelter Network, and will hold the Housing Justice Quality Mark accreditation, although this is not a requirement.

Applications should be for grants between £10,000 and £30,000. In exceptional cases an application outside of this range may be considered.

Homelessness Winter Transformation Fund 2021/22

CLOSED

Homeless Link and Housing Justice jointly administer the Homelessness Winter Transformation Fund for 2021/22. This fund is the successor to the fund of the same name that ran in 2020/21.

Once again the fund aims to support winter night shelters to provide COVID-19 secure accommodation for the winter.

Crucially, this year’s fund includes £1m of capital through which projects can apply to fund capital works such as significant renovation to make buildings used to support people experiencing rough sleeping as safe as possible.

Applications for the fund will open in May and Housing Justice is hosting a launch webinar to outline the fund on 15th April 2021, go here to register or to access the webinar materials.
