Moving from a hostel into your first flat can be a daunting experience. Most starter flats are let unfurnished and without curtains, carpets, white goods, pots and pans or cooking utensils. Some Local Authorities and other charities offer grants for carpets or white goods but usually people can be put into an empty home without the basics and expected to just “get on with it!”

We offer grants of up to £250 for people living in Worcestershire and who are moving from hostels or resettlement houses into their own independent tenancies to provide essentials like furniture, curtains, carpets, bedding, starter packs, etc or anything that will ensure the success of the move.

Working with our referring organisations, we help, on average, seven single people each month to move on from homelessness into their own secure homes.

Grants can be applied for through our Partners or any organisation working with the homeless who can verify that the person is genuinely homeless or living in a hostel and has secured a tenancy in their own name.
