Wakefield Rent Deposit Scheme and bond guarantees
Social Fund loans cannot be issued to pay for a bond or a deposit. However, you may be able to access help from Wakefield Rent Deposit Scheme (WRDS).
WRDS helps homeless people to secure private rented housing by providing landlords with a bond guarantee on their behalf and clients with housing-related support during their tenancy.
You may be eligible for a bond guarantee if you are:
Homeless or potentially homeless
Capable of independent living
Aged 18 or over; and
Single or a couple without children; and
In receipt of some benefits or on a low income
Self-referrals are accepted, as well as referrals from other agencies.
To find out more about the scheme, please contact the scheme direct.
