Funding for not-for-profit organisations working to prevent long-term homelessness and shelter insecurity in the UK, India, South Africa, Zambia and Nigeria.
Comic Relief has launched this funding opportunity focussed on preventing homelessness and insecure shelter. The fund is for ‘locally rooted’ organisations working to prevent long-term homelessness and shelter insecurity in the UK, India, South Africa, Zambia and Nigeria.
