Private Rented Sector Scheme (PRS)

Our PRS Scheme (previously called the Homebond Scheme) helps people to secure privately rented accommodation. As part of the scheme, we provide financial support to people who are having difficulty with their finances or those threatened with homelessness.

We assess households for the scheme based on the person’s circumstances and their priority need.

Financial support could include help with rent in advance or putting a deposit down for accommodation.

To increase the success of the tenancies under the PRS Scheme, we will carry out an affordability assessment for each person before the scheme is agreed. You can get further advice about the PRS Scheme at Kingsley House.
