Did you know that every three months £20,000 is up for grabs? Through the DPS Fund we donate to charities that do amazing work in a range of housing-related issues.
We recently visited Bosco House, a successful applicant to our eighth round of awards to hand over a ‘big cheque’ (see the picture below).
Bosco society is a small charitable organisation which provides 23 bed spaces to single homeless men. Many of whom have a troubled background, such as misuse problems, mental health issues and other offences.
“Bosco House undertakes fundamentally important work helping young people find housing and teaching them the skills to live on their own” Daren King, our Head of Tenancy Deposit Protection.
The £5,000 award will help with the opening of a new hostel in Sefton that will house 13 homeless young people.
James Heller, a Senior Worker at Bosco House, said: “We are extremely delighted and grateful to The DPS for the funding provided for our new hostel.
“The funding provided will go a long way towards providing a safe and secure environment for our clients and will contribute to rebuilding lives and combating homelessness in Merseyside.”
We look forward to catching up with Bosco House soon, to see how the donation has helped.
