Ending Women's Homelessness

Twenty-nine diverse charities from across England that work with women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness have been awarded grants from Homeless Link's Ending Women's Homelessness grants, funded by the Government’s Tampon Tax Fund.

Eighteen organisations will receive large grants of up to £100,000 and a further eleven small grants of up to £32,000 are to be awarded to charities with a turnover of less than £2 million, with funding totalling £1.85 million.

Homeless Link’s grants programme aims to help end women’s homelessness by building capacity for gender- and trauma-informed services and developing partnerships between homelessness and specialist women’s sector charities. To amplify its impact, it will create a community of organisations that meet to share expertise and learning.

For the full list of grantees, please see the press release.
