Homeless Change and Platform for Life Funds 2015-2017

The Department of Health has announced a new £55 million homeless fund administered by the HCA and GLA over 2 years to upgrade existing accommodation and provide new housing.

The money will be used for:

  • the Homeless Change project (upgrading hostel accommodation to improve physical and mental health outcomes for rough sleepers and to help reduce A&E attendances)
  • the Platform for Life project (new low-rent shared accommodation for young people who want to work, but are struggling to hold down a job or attend college because of a lack of stable housing).
