Give DIFFerently

Communities, Health | South Glamorgan

The Give ‘DIFFerently Fund is a working partnership between the Community Foundation in Wales, Big Issue, FOR Cardiff, Cardiff City Council, South Wales Police, The Wallich, Huggard Centre and Public Health Wales. The initiative will consider applications for funding from voluntary and third sector organisations providing professional support to individuals currently living on the street, with the aim of moving individuals away from homelessness and/or to stop they from returning to homelessness.


With a focus on ‘prevention’, 10% of the fund will be ring-fenced for organisations working with those at risk of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to try to prevent the next generation from becoming homeless and having to resort to street-based activities such as begging.  


OBJECTIVES

  • Reduce the amount of homelessness in the city centre area through timely intervention.
  • Make and sustain changes to prevent homelessness and causes related to or leading to homelessness.
  • Increase employability skills by achieving their education, training and career goals
  • Improve their financial management.
  • Settle into their communities and to engage fully and positively with society
