Routes to Roots has been awarded a £15,000 grant from Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales to fund the costs of volunteer training and a Client Assessment and Outcome Monitoring Database. The charity already keeps paper-based client records of all those attending its drop-ins and participating in the activities it offers, in order to monitor and evaluate its services. This grant will greatly strengthen its effectiveness in working with homeless and vulnerably housed people in Poole and in developing and enhancing the skills of its volunteer base.

In addition to grant funding the charity is able to take advantage of non-financial support through the Foundation’s Enhance Programme – such as mentoring, consultancy and technical support – provided by a range of partners including Lloyds Banking Group.

In June 2013 R2R received £2,000 from the trustees of The Alice Ellen Cooper Dean Charitable Foundation towards helping the homeless and newly housed people in Poole. The Foundation was established by an initial gift from Ellen Cooper Dean and supplemented by a legacy following her death in 1994. It funds projects and appeals from local and national charitable bodies registered with the Charity Commission, with special consideration given to any which benefit the community in Dorset and West Hampshire.
