Northumberland County Council currently commissions two rent deposit guarantee schemes, one for those aged 16-25 or with young children; and the second for clients who have dual diagnosis, are fleeing domestic abuse or have a drug or alcohol dependency. Both schemes contain an element of fostering good relationships with landlords and promoting the work of the NCC accreditation scheme.
The current schemes have been successful with low failure rates, but are too limited in scope to address housing need across the county. Single persons and households over 25 and with no dependent children currently have no access to a Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme, therefore a decision has been taken to re-examine provision for non-priority groups.
