|Nationwide Foundation - Backing Community-Led Housing (UK)
The Nationwide Foundation aims to increase the availability of good quality, affordable homes in the places where they are most needed. Through the Community-led housing programme, the Foundation will support communities to build new homes, create homes from empty properties, protect existing decent, affordable homes and provide homes of all types of tenure.
|Community Housing Fund (England)
The Community Housing Fund will support an increase in housing supply by increasing the number of additional homes delivered by the community-led housing sector that is affordable at local income levels and remain so in perpetuity. The fund is split into two phases: Phase 1 – will support applications for revenue funding for project specific activities that support development of community-led housing proposals and capital bids for local infrastructure projects that will result in housing developments; Phase 2 – will provide capital funding to support the costs of building new community-led housing schemes.
|Quaker Housing Trust Grant (UK)
The Quaker Housing Trust supports social housing projects that would find it difficult to find funding elsewhere. The trust supports registered charities and small organisations that are meeting local housing needs for people of any age who are vulnerable and in housing need. The projects are mainly small and generally volunteer-led, often with support from local Quakers. Trustees are particularly interested in housing projects that meet the needs of individuals who are vulnerable at points of transition in their lives. Four specific grants are available: Health Check Service Grant; Feasibility Study Grant; Environmental Assessment Grant; Dissemination of Good Practice Grant. See funder's website for further details.
