Help the Homeless is a grant-giving trust, founded in 1975 to help homeless people off the streets and enable them to live healthy, independent lives. To date we have made grants of almost £3million. We fund a wide variety of organisations all over the country and favour small, grassroots charities working to help the most vulnerable people in their communities.
Sadly homelessness remains a serious problem in the UK and is now on the increase. The ongoing pandemic, cuts in services and rising living costs are impacting most on those already disadvantaged by low income, insecure housing, mental health issues and family breakdown. In addition, many small charities are stretched to breaking point and are struggling to meet this increased demand. Our support is needed now more than ever.
We are a small, cost efficient charity with just one part-time member of staff and minimal overheads. We are therefore able to distribute a large proportion of our funds to organisations helping some of the UK’s most underprivileged people.
We rely on the generosity of our supporters to continue this vital work. All donations, gifts and legacies are most gratefully received and put to excellent use – please help us.
