CRASH, the construction and property industries’ charity assists homelessness charities as well as hospices with their construction projects. CRASH offers help in a practical way as well as providing cash grants.
They do this by supporting improvements to hospices and to hostels, day centres, night shelters, training centres and move-on accommodation for frontline homelessness agencies who work directly with homeless people.
Suuport is offered to these organisations by:
- Providing professional expertise such as, architects, quantity surveyors, project managers and specialist engineers
- Providing cash grants
- And /or providing free building materials free of charge from supporting suppliers.
To be eligible for support organisations must be registered charities, have legal hold on the building in question (either freehold or lease for at least 10 years) and the building is currently delivering, or will be used to deliver, services to single homeless men and women over the age of 18 or used to deliver in-patient and/or day services to people in need of end of life care.
Please phone CRASH in advance of making your application to discuss your project and the ways in which CRASH may be able to help.
