Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme
We run a Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme to help individuals, couples or families renting in the private sector.
The scheme aims to help people who cannot provide a deposit and where one of the following criteria applies:
- Aged 16 years and over and may be homeless, or at risk of homelessness, and have received homelessness advice or assistance
- Assessed as living in below tolerable standard accommodation
- Assessed as having a high medical priority
- Have not accrued a debt through the scheme in the past
For more information about the scheme, please download our Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme leaflet:
Or contact your local housing office to find out how the scheme can help you get private rented accommodation.
