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​.
