How to apply for a grant

TAP for Bristol is a project offering support to local homeless charities –
supporting them through grants made possible by the fundraising initiative. The income generated through fundraising will be managed and evaluated by Quartet Community Foundation.
The launch of TAP for Bristol will create new funds in the city for those working closely with people who are street homeless. The City Centre BID, in partnership with Caring in Bristol and Quartet Community Foundation, are looking for a homelessness partnership to distribute personal budgets to clients experiencing homelessness issues.

This potential funding for emergency support will be available as a grant, managed by Quartet, for local organisations to provide personal budgets to clients experiencing homelessness issues.

We are looking for a partnership of organisations perhaps led by a single provider, to distribute these funds as they see fit, with some key parameters.

Similar projects have used funds for providing travel to job interviews or around the city, supporting access to education and rehabilitative courses or buying a bike to get to and from work.

Rather than running a competitive grant application process with limited and unpredictable funds. The City Centre BID would like to receive via Quartet one or two partnerships applications from organisations working directly with homeless people.

The initiative is open to considering proposals for support from experienced organisations that have a sound knowledge of the current service shortfalls.

It is critical that applications are focused on supporting a life away from living on the streets. Applications must also be for the specific needs of an individual currently seeking support.

Some examples of the types of support we would encourage include:

  • Buying a bike for someone to attend interviews and/or work
  • Supporting access to educational or rehabilitative course
  • Clothing for an interview or work
  • White or electrical goods for housing
  • Communication
  • Health and well being

If you are interested and want to know if you are eligible to apply, or need help with developing
your partnership, please contact Ronnie Brown.

Local homeless support charity Caring in Bristol, who are also partners of TAP for Bristol, will receive 50% of all donations to fund new work in prevention and education of homelessness. They will be supporting people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, whilst also raising awareness among those of us living, working and travelling through the city about how we can help.

Please contact ronnie.brown@quartetcf.org.uk for more information.
