About the Hanley at Home Fund

The Hanley at Home fund will award grants to organisations that will help people to manage and maintain their own home. There are many ways that this could be achieved and so we don’t want to be too prescriptive. We are happy to consider your project for funding if you think it will help to achieve this aim. Some examples of projects could include:

  • Teaching children and young people about finance and household financial management, such as how bank accounts, credit cards and interest works
  • Helping people to learn independent living skills so that they are able to live alone
  • Supporting organisations which will help older people with hospital discharge so that they can return to their homes
  • Supporting people to remain in their homes when faced with a medical condition
  • To help and support people into housing where they might not ordinarily consider it as a viable option

This list is not exhaustive, and we are happy to receive proposals which address the overall aims of the fund.

Organisations should be based in or working in:

  • Stoke-on-Trent
  • Newcastle-under-Lyme
  • Staffordshire Moorlands
  • Stafford

Key aims of the Hanley at Home fund:

  • To support organisations that will help people learn life skills so that they will be more able to manage and maintain their own home.
  • To support organisations that will help people to remain in their own home on discharge from hospital.
  • To help and encourage people into housing to whom this would otherwise not be an option.
  • To support children and young people in learning about finance and improving their financial literacy skills.
