Case studies

We’ve given grants for all sorts of projects

From creating working HR systems to sending young people to Philadelphia. The common thread among all the people we work with is a desire to make a difference.

Pat Case StudyFebruary 16, 2018 2:29 pmThe LHF is proud to support the excellent work of Prisoners Abroad, who won second price, and £20,000, in the London Homelessness Awards 2017. We asked two people they have supported to tell us their stories. Desmond’s blog first appeared on the Prisoners Abroad site www.prisonersabroad.org.uk. I was in detention for 15 months for illegal entry into the USA  - I had cancer when I was put into detention, and was receiving treatment up until that point. When I was detained, all treatment stopped. That was my biggest concern - my health and my future, which was made even harder by the fact that I was grieving for my daughter who had recently died. It was a very tough time.Read More

We asked two people they have supported to tell us their stories. Desmond’s blog first appeared on the Prisoners Abroad site www.prisonersabroad.org.uk. I was deported from America in 2016; having been out of the country for 3 decades. I was last in London in 1982 and had no idea of what I could expect upon my return. I was supported by Prisoners Abroad whilst incarcerated in America. Time almost stood still at times, but the cards, newspapers and knowing that they were on the other side of the water were there for me made a massive difference.Read More
DePaul Case Study
DePaul Case StudyFebruary 13, 2018 2:56 pmThe London Housing Foundation is proud to support the work of Depaul International in Ukraine.  We asked the team there to tell us about some of the things they have been doing with LHF support. Although it might not be in the news as much as previously, the conflict in the east of the country is still on-going.  Many people have had to leave their homes to find safety in other parts of Ukraine. Up to May 2016, there had been 1.7 million people registered as displaced. Many of them experience poverty and are at risk of homelessness – they are in need of humanitarian assistance and turn to Depaul Ukraine for support.Read More

How Safe is the Safety Net?January 4, 2017 3:36 pmThe LHF has supported the London Network of Nurses and Midwives in Homelessness for a number of years. We help to fund their annual conference, which brings together professionals from across London to share good practice and discover what other projects are working on.
