Platform for Life: guidance and allocations

This collection gives housing providers information on bidding guidance and allocations.

The Homes and Communities Agency is allocating a share of up to £25 million capital funding for specialist housing providers, on behalf of the Department of Health, to bring forward proposals for developing low-rent accommodation for young people aged 18 to 24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and are in housing need, to support their participation in work, further education or vocational training, with the aim of assisting residents into long term employment and independence, and improving their prospects for a successful and healthy life.

This programme was launched jointly alongside the Homelessness Change 2015 to 2017 fund in March 2015.
