The Foundation is a charity with a mission to raise the standards of private rented housing management. They provide education and information to tenants, landlords and agents directly and through grants to other organisations.

In 2018 the Foundation is looking to support projects which focus on one of the following themes:

Promoting knowledge of landlords’ obligations

or

Promoting knowledge of tenants’ rights & responsibilities

Promoting knowledge of landlords’ obligations

It is clear that the growth of the private rented sector has been fuelled in recent years in part by the rise of the ‘accidental landlord’.  This is often a person who owns property but who is required by circumstances to let the property.  These landlords tend to be inexperienced and not fully understand the obligations that they have to meet as a landlord.

The Foundation invites proposals that will help to educate such landlords about the obligations of being a private landlord.

Please note: They will not fund general workshop sessions for the time being, except where applications are particularly innovative.

Promoting knowledge of tenants’ rights & responsibilities

The Foundation is aware that many tenants are not fully aware of their rights and responsibilities and the Foundation will invite proposals which will help educate tenants about their rights and responsibilities.

The Foundation invites proposals that will help to educate tenants.

Please note: We will not fund general workshop sessions for the time being, except where applications are particularly innovative. If you are a small organisation, representing landlords or tenants, and wish to deliver training about renting a property, there is a free training course pack that may help you. This is a RLA project previously funded by TDS Charitable Foundation.

Funding streams

The Foundation adopts a funding stream strategy:

  • A national funding stream for larger projects with national impact [c £50,000 per project];
  • An innovation fund to enable those riskier projects to be funded [c £25,000 per project]
  • A community stream for local projects [c £10,000 per project]

It is important in your bid that you set out the funding stream you wish to bid under.
