GIVE Grants

Supporting community projects and organisations that make a positive difference

Thrive Homes is keen to support projects that are making a real difference to our residents and the wider community.

Our community grant application scheme - GIVE Grants - provides funding to locally based charities and community groups that enable them to deliver new or additional services to our customers and other residents living in our local communities.

We want to fund projects that reflect the five themes:

  • Training, employment and enterprise
    • Work related training including work placements.
    • Employment preparedness training and coaching.
    • Volunteering based work experience.
    • Employment and job seeker support and advice.
  • Social inclusion
    • Youth development including activities and clubs.
    • Tackling youth unemployment.
    • Specialist support for vulnerable people.
    • Play groups and children's centres.
    • Parental support groups and training.
  • Health and wellbeing
    • Life skills.
    • Housing options advice and support.
    • Community-based health activities.
    • Independent living support.
  • Financial inclusion and support
    • Debt advice and support services.
    • Money management training.
    • Fuel poverty advice and support.
    • Benefits advice and support.
  • Environmental sustainability
    • Tree planting and conservation in the community.
    • Saving water, electricity and/or waste.
    • Renewable energy projects.

The grant from the Thrive GIVE Community Grants team has helped make possible the support of individuals at a true crisis point in their lives. People with nowhere else to go receive a bed, cooked meals, fresh clothes and personalised support at no cost to themselves.
