Funders and Supporters




The Millfield House Foundation aims to reduce inequality by funding work which helps to change policy for the better.  Despite the campaigns over many years, successive governments and society as a whole have failed to give sufficient priority to housing policy and provision. Gross inequality in income and spiralling costs make it very difficult, if not impossible, for people on low incomes to afford a place of their own, which particularly increases the vulnerability of young people. Youth Homeless North East are one of the few strategic partners of the foundation. For more information on The Millfield House Foundation Strategic Partners click here
