Back to What We've Funded

The Bond Board

The Bond Board is a charity that exists to reduce homelessness by getting people on low incomes into private rented accommodation. They provide Bond Guarantees for tenancies which take the place of cash deposits and provide security for landlords.

Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity provided funding in 2020 to help support their advice work ahead of the eviction ban being lifted. The impact of this grant was:

  • 31 (27 cases still ongoing) of homelessness prevented and tenancies sustained
  • 25 service users received emergency support e.g food
  • 16 service users rehoused into alternative accommodation
  • 62 households reported an increase in knowledge about their housing rights and responsibilities
  • £27,471.40 back into the pockets of low-income households, many of whom had lost income as a result of Covid 19

“Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the private rented sector, and we have seen first-hand the real threat of homelessness the pandemic has brought. Thanks to funding from the GM Mayoral Fund, The Bond Board has been able to offer early housing advice and support for those at risk of homelessness, as well as income maximisation support and practical help for those in crisis. This project has been life changing for many households and utterly vital in preventing many private tenants from facing the trauma of homelessness''. Thomas Ingham. Housing Adviser, The Bond Board.

“The service was amazing, they helped me in a time where I lost hope and was helpless and could not sleep at nights due to the pressure from the landlord for the eviction and being homeless. I did not know such a service was available out there to help people like us. Thank you so much Bond Board for your support.” Bond Board Tenants Advocacy Service User.
