The charitable foundation of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) has launched a new round of funding for schemes that promote knowledge of landlords’ obligations or educate tenants about their rights and responsibilities.
The TDS Charitable Foundation awarded £76,063 in its previous round of funding and has awarded more than £536,200 since 2014.
There is a maximum of £5,000 available for each project in the 12th round of funding and submissions must be received by September 17.
Previous projects include guidance for a national student organisation to a charity that supports deaf tenants in understanding their rights and responsibilities.
Professor Martin Partington, chairman of the TDS Charitable Foundation, said: “It’s incredible to see the diverse range of organisations that have been awarded funding.
“Every round, we see organisations representing all areas of the PRS, and when we hear how the funding is used, it’s heartening to know that the TDS Charitable Foundation is making such a huge difference.
“We are always looking for exciting and innovative suggestions, proposals and projects, and I’d encourage any organisation or charity that educates and informs tenants, landlords, agents and property professionals within the PRS to apply ahead of the September deadline.”
