St Petrocs has been selected as one of ten organisations to be a part of national charity Crisis’s latest Best Practice programme.

The grant of £25,000 from Crisis, funded by the People's Postcode Lottery, will contribute specifically towards activity focusing on preventing homelessness and rapid rehousing.  We are honoured to be a part of this and to have our work recognised as contributing to the development and understanding of best practice in the sector.

Last year, our resettlement and outreach teams worked with 997 people.  Grant funding such as this allows us to provide an individually tailored approach to every person we support in their hour of need.

On behalf of everyone at St Petrocs: clients, residents, staff, volunteers, and trustees, a sincere thank you to the Crisis Best Practice Team for this grant award.

More information on the Crisis Best Practice Grant Programme

The Best Practice Team works within Crisis’ Policy and External Affairs Directorate. Their work is focused across the four themes of rapid rehousing, welfare, prevention and non-UK nationals’ homelessness. 

Part of the team’s objective is to be proactive in developing and testing new models, ways of working and current housing theories to 

make sure Crisis can highlight and champion new ways of ending homelessness both as a sector leader and practitioner.

For this round, grants have been awarded to organisations that can demonstrate they have a focus on housing led approaches to preventing and ending homelessness. To see details of previous grant rounds and organisations awarded, you can visit their website at the link below.
