CHANGING WORLD

2015

Changes to the way services are funded and commissioned are causing many homelessness charities to rethink the way they do things.

HERE TO HELP The Future Ready fund aims to help you prepare for tomorrow’s challenges. The fund offers voluntary sector organisations that work with homeless people the opportunity to apply for grants from £5,000 to £25,000. You can apply for grants to help: • Adopt new ways of working or build your skills • Form new partnerships with other organisations • Test new approaches that could attract funding • Make difficult decisions about the future of your organisation • Improve business planning or collect evidence to demonstrate the importance of your work.
