SPACES assists the most vulnerable single Service Leavers to secure appropriate accommodation as they leave the Armed Forces in order to reduce the likelihood of them becoming homeless or rough sleepers. In order to ensure the provision of this service, the MOD has paid SPACES the following:

FY2010-11 = £170,750

FY2011-12 = £175,019

FY2012-13 = £179,394

FY2013-14 = £179,394

FY2014-15 = £179,394
