Hollywell secures £75,000 grant from Lloyds Foundation

We are thrilled to announce that Hollywell has been successful in securing a three year grant of £75,000 from The Lloyds Foundation! This grant has been awarded to Hollywell in recognition of our growth and future potential, enabling us to continue to grow out work in the Cornwall area. These funds will enable us to house over 30 new tenants over 3 years, providing vital housing and housing support to some of the most vulnerable people in society. 

In order for us to house a tenant we have to pay up front costs of up to £2500 per person, money that we don’t get back. These funds – and all the other grant funding we have secured – help to cover the costs associated with housing a vulnerable person, allowing them to have a home of their own in the community. Check out our ‘Case Studies’ tab on the main website for some examples of some of the vulnerable people we have supported into their own home over the last 3 years.
