The government is providing £10 million over 3 years to support providers of night shelters to transform their services in England. Voluntary and community groups can bid for funding for both capital and revenue activities.
The Fund will run between 2022-2025 and there will be multiple bidding rounds. Information on future bidding rounds will be released in due course.
The eligibility criteria states: “We therefore require applicants to submit the relevant local authority’s endorsement, by letter or email, to ensure that bids complement (and do not duplicate or contradict) the council’s work and that of commissioned services. Please note that letters should come from Officers responsible for rough sleeping within the local authority”. The contact within Leeds City Council is Simon Hodgson email address: [email protected]
