Enterprise Development Programme
The Enterprise Development Programme, funded by Access, is a bespoke learning programme and peer network. It aims to support organisations who are working to end homelessness through early stage ideation, testing, developing or growing their trading activity, and includes grants of up to £30,000 plus financial peripatetic support.
Social Investment Fund
Our Social Investment Fund, operating since 2017 with funding from Access, the Foundation for Social Investment, enabled us to offer blended finance options for homelessness focused organisations, offering a mixture of 80% loan and 20% grant. Investees were able to develop and scale up social enterprise activity or to improve their sustainability.Find out more
