Supporting People who experience disadvantage in social housing

From its early days, Lintel has sought to address issues of disadvantage in social housing.

Our emphasis has been to support projects that help those recognised as being most disadvantaged in housing today, including sngle homeless people, disabled people, people with mental health problems and people from Black and minority ethnic communities across the length and breadth of Scotland.   

We do this by taking the donations we receive, whether from other charitable Trusts, commercial companies or from individuals and making these into a series of grants (or sometimes small scale loans) to projects working with disadvantaged groups across Scotland.

This can include housing associations and co-operatives, as well as local projects.

National projects wil be considered as long as the work they do is evident in Scotland.

Applicants do not  necessarily have to be registered charities but they should have charitable aims.

Special thanks to the SFHA for their on-going support.
