Action Homeless, Leicester

Funding at a glance

Amount: £140,000 grant
Approved: 2016

Action Homeless is a charity based in Leicester dedicated to tackling the causes and consequences of homelessness. It provides supported accommodation and resettlement services to enable people who are homeless to rebuild their lives.


Action Homeless used the grant from the Nationwide Foundation to create 16 studio flats to house people who were experiencing homelessness and were living in emergency or temporary housing. In addition to their homelessness, individuals may have experienced other complex issues such as mental health problems, relationship or family breakdown, drug and alcohol dependencies. The homes provide a move-on opportunity for people and enable them to regain their independence.

The Nationwide Foundation’s grant contributed towards the renovation costs.
