The Oak Foundation - Housing and Homelessness


The Oak Foundation seeks to fund initiatives rooted in a deep understanding of the experiences of people facing homelessness.

They target their support where homelessness and housing problems unfairly and disproportionately affect sections of communities. This includes Black and Minority ethnic communities, disabled people, LGBTQI communities, and older and younger people.

Their funding addresses three themes:

  • Renter rights
  • Supply and access to affordable and decent homes
  • Reduction and prevention of homelessness.
