The Enterprise Development Programme is a five year programme, funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment and managed by a coalition of partners, of which Homeless Link are one. The programme aims to provide a broad range of support for charities and social enterprises in England, helping them become more financially resilient by developing new enterprise models, or by growing existing ones.


The programme has offered tailored support to organisations that are thinking of exploring new models of trading to help them become more financially resilient and who require support to make the transition.


Over the past three years, Homeless Link has been working with organisations who are seeking to end homelessness to support them to identify, test, implement or scale trading models to help them become more financially sustainable. Alongside financial sustainability, we have also supported these organisations to increase employment and training opportunities available to their service users in turn which has increased their social impact.


We are now part of the Allumni Network and one of our goals is to support the sector learning around the role of enterprise within employability and training for people using homelessness services.
