Homeless Link is launching a £4.5 million Social Investment Fund on 19 June 2017. The programme is funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment, through its Growth Fund. The money will be invested over the next three years and will offer homelessness organisations in England unsecured loans between £25,000 and £150,000.
The programme aims to test and learn where social investment can be most effectively used alongside other forms of funding to improve outcomes. Homeless Link is looking to support organisations to increase the homelessness sector’s knowledge and experience of social investment, develop new models for income generation and funding and improve their long-term sustainability.
The launch event will be on 19th June.
