Homeless Link Grant


We are delighted to be able to announce that we have been awarded a Homeless Link grant. The award of £98,000 will fund an expansion of our work to house and support more disadvantaged people in Hackney and Islington at a time when increasing numbers face possible homelessness due to the pandemic. We hope to be able to use this important grant to assist many more of our tenants to move on to a home and a life of their own, and to make available more of our accommodation to increasing numbers of people in need.
