The judges will base their initial assessment on your application form alone so supporting material may not be submitted.

The 2017 awards open for entries on Monday 10 April 2017.

You can download the entry form and guidance notes here.

Entrants must agree to the following on receipt of any prize money awarded:

  • Prize money must be used to enhance the services of the project, or to develop a new service for the project. This may include extending your project to cover other parts of London, improving services to homeless people or vulnerable groups; preventing homelessness and tackling disadvantage caused by homelessness.
  • Prize money must not be used for existing staff costs or to pay off existing debt, and should be used within a reasonable period of time.

If you are shortlisted for the awards, the judges may wish to visit the project and speak to service users and staff to get a feel for the project on the ground.  If this is the case, a suitable date will be arranged for the visit during which judges will expect to have reasonable access to relevant individuals in order to inform their decision-making. You will not be required to provide access to any data or records.
