Affordable, decent housing is a pre-requisite to good physical and mental health and wellbeing. Those employed in key health, education and other social services are adversely affected in multiple ways by lack of access to affordable housing in the vicinity of their places of work.
The Trustees are committed to helping improvements in this area and will occasionally provide small grants to charities and other non-profit organisations operating in London that campaign for and/or provide affordable accommodation for key workers. Exceptionally the Trustees may make a material contribution for the direct capital provision of such accommodation.
Some of the Trustees are already active in the field of affordable housing, and therefore are aware already of the opportunities to assist other charities and organisations seeking to alleviate this particular housing issue. As a result, the Trustees do not really require applications for funding in this area but will identify opportunities themselves.
