Under the Rent Deposit Scheme, we will pay a deposit to a private landlord on your behalf. This will enable you to rent a home in the private sector. These properties are often in residential streets rather than estates and usually have gardens.

This scheme is only available to:

  • customers we have placed in temporary accommodation;
  • customers we have accepted a responsibility to provide housing for

If you think you may qualify and are interested in finding out more about this scheme, please contact the Housing Options Team
