Enterprise Development Programme: Homelessness

This is the second phase of a programme aiming to provide a range of support for charities and social enterprises, helping them make a transition to new enterprises or grow existing ones.

The programme will support organisations that are thinking of exploring new enterprise models and require financial or business support to make the transition, with the eventual aim of taking on social investment in the future.

Support is available to charities and social enterprises working in the homelessness sector, with a range of packages of financial and business support available for successful applicants. These could include any or all of the following:

  • Grants of up to £30,000 to research or test out new ideas, to launch new enterprises or grow existing ones (grants likely to be conditional on evidence of growing income streams, using methods such as MatchTrading
  • Joining a peer cohort to share enterprise journeys.
  • Training and learning opportunities tailored to needs.
  • Direct advice and support.
