Homeless Schemes To Benefit From New Help-To-Rent Fund

Crisis has announced the first beneficiaries of a £150,000 fund intended to support projects working to help people who are – or at risk of becoming – homeless. Five UK housing projects have been chosen to benefit from the Help-to-Rent fund, which has been commissioned by Crisis. The funding will help the projects to continue their work to help single homeless people to find long-term solutions to their homelessness, the charity said. The winners were announced to delegates attending Crisis’, ‘The Private Rented Sector – A Home For All?’ conference. Funded by the Oak Foundation, the conference explored challenges in the sector including access, affordability, standards and security, but also where practice can only go so far and where policy needs to change.
