Ensuring access to a secure and stable home, enabling people to live dignified lives in a fairer society

In the Housing and Homelessness Programme, we focus on preventing homelessness.

We have three priorities:

  • promoting economic self-sufficiency;
  • increasing the availability and supply of affordable housing; and
  • preventing homelessness.

Grants within the programme are wide-ranging in size. We partner with organisations working both nationally and locally in Boston, New York and Philadelphia in the United States and in London, Belfast, South Wales, Glasgow and Birmingham in the United Kingdom. Within each location, we aim to fund projects relevant to the three priorities. In addition, we have adopted specific objectives that recognise particular issues in some of the localities where we make grants. You can read more about our strategy below.
