Isla Foundation – Tipping Point Grants available for organisations offering creative solutions to homelessness

Grants available: up to £40,000
Deadline: 12 November 2020

Rough sleeping has increased by 141% in the last decade, the result of welfare reforms, housing shortages, rising rents and budget cuts. And this doesn’t include the hidden homeless.

The pandemic has by far been the most unsettling experience in homelessness, but it has been a circuit breaker. It has given us all the opportunity to think about doing things differently. We have witnessed the agility of organisations, responding rapidly and fearlessly. We have witnessed organisational boundaries being pushed and broken, and the coming together of services. For the first time, we have seen health, housing, mental health, drug and alcohol, social care and local authorities working together.

What you can use the funds for:

  • Capital costs (such as building and land improvements);
  • Staff costs;
  • Activities;
  • Equipment;
  • Other core costs needed to support the project;
  • One time events if we understand their wider play in the project’s aim.

The Isla Foundation encourage organisations partnering up to apply, with a lead organisation responsible for the reporting and as a point of contact for the foundation.
