To mark our 10th anniversary, Commonweal Housing is launching a competition to find new solutions to social injustices. Under the title Starter for 10, the competition offers £10,000 to fund a feasibility study into an area of social injustice with housing being part of the solution.
The project aims to provide housing for those with insecure immigration status and are trapped in destitution - denied the opportunity to work and support themselves and unable to access benefits.
