The next application deadline for applications to the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) Charitable Foundation is 5pm on the 17th September 2018. The TDS Charitable Foundation aims to improve private rented housing standards. Through its grants programme, the Foundation is looking to support bids which promote knowledge of landlord’s obligations or educate tenants about their rights and responsibilities. Charitable organisations including housing associations and community interest companies (CIC’s) can apply.
The maximum bid for funding for this bidding round is £5,000 per project.
Please note: The TDS Charitable Foundation will not fund general workshop sessions for the time being, except where applications are particularly innovative. If you are a small organisation, representing landlords or tenants, and wish to deliver training about renting a property, there is a free training course pack that may help you. This is a RLA project previously funded by TDS Charitable Foundation.
Previous projects supported include:
- 4 the community – a project to extend and improve the information, education, and support available to Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO) tenants in Rhyl.
- Cardiff Tenants and Residents Federation – a tenant education programme that specifically informs tenants about the key differences about renting in Wales, as well as wider rights and responsibilities.
