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

Our Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme leaflet gives more information about the scheme:

The Scheme allows us to work in partnership with Landlords to address the demand for housing in the area.  More information about guidance for landlords is available here:
