Rent Deposit Scheme

Rent Deposit Scheme

Launched in June 2017, the project provides bonds that enable young people to access the rental property market.

The Rent Deposit Scheme (RDS), funded by Yorkshire Building Society, supported more than 400 homeless young people to live independently between 2017-20. The scheme made it possible to provide homeless young people with rent deposits, home essential grants and dedicated assistance. The Rent Deposit Scheme was rolled out across the UK by the majority of our member charities. 

The RDS has now transitioned into a new Housing Fund, which will help even more young people into a safe place to call home. Fund out more about the Housing Fund here.

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