The Nationwide Foundation has funding available under two of its outcomes: the private rented sector and alternative housing models. We provide funding to charitable organisations in the form of grants or social investments. There is no funding currently available for empty properties.
We use our funding to improve the living conditions of vulnerable tenants in private rented sector homes.
We fund projects which support research with purpose, for example influencing policymakers to bring about beneficial changes for vulnerable tenants, as well as funding local work with the potential to be replicated.
We use our funding to support the development of alternative affordable housing models, with the potential to scale.
We fund a range of projects enabling the research, development, piloting and scaling-up of alternative affordable housing models. Models may address increasing the availability of social housing, creating new routes to affordable home ownership, or devising new ways to provide decent, affordable housing to rent or buy.
Charitable organisations which work in either of these areas and are thinking of applying for funding should contact Gary Hartin, programme manager firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how their work fits with our criteria. Funding applications for these two outcomes can be made at any time and there is not a closing date.
