Rent Deposit Scheme

Rent Deposit Scheme

Launched in June 17, the project provides bonds that enable young people to access the rental property market.

The Rent Deposit Scheme, funded by Yorkshire Building Society, will support more than 700 homeless young people to live independently by 2020. This will be achieved by providing support to homeless young people with rent deposits, home essential grants and dedicated assistance. The Rent Deposit Scheme helps private landlords to fill vacant properties quickly and is free of charge. It has been rolled out across the UK by the majority of our member charities. 

124 young people have been supported into their own accommodation since June '17.

If you’re a landlord interested in getting involved with the scheme please contact Zara Shad at
