Homeless Link Social Investment Fund
Of interest to organisations dealing with homelessness.
Launched in May 2017, the Homeless Link Social Investment Fund has, over three years, £4.5m to invest in charities and social enterprises working to reduce homelessness across England.
Their aim is to test and learn where social investment can be most effectively used alongside other forms of funding to improve outcomes. They are looking to support organisations to:
- increase the homelessness sector’s knowledge and experience of social investment
- develop new models for income generation and funding
- improve their long-term sustainability
The programme is the first of its kind exclusively for the homelessness sector and one of very few sector-specific funds in existence.
Homeless Link will invest the money over the next three years, offering homelessness organisations unsecured loans of amounts between £25,000 and £150,000
