The Rotherham Bond Guarantee Scheme Limited is a registered Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee and was set up in 1996 to provide help and support for people who are homeless or about to become homeless. By providing a guaranteed bond to Landlords we aim to help people who are in receipt of benefits or on low incomes secure accommodation within the Private Rented Sector.
Since its small beginnings RoBond as it is more commonly known has grown, providing essential services within the Rotherham area to help reduce homelessness and/or the risk of homelessness throughout the Borough.
We can help you:
- Secure a Private Rented property with landlords who will accept our Bond Guarantee
- Help with Housing Benefits
- Help with setting up your utilities
We are a referral only organization and so you will need to be referred via a statutory organization such as Rotherham Borough Council or through a voluntary organization such as Citizens Advice or alternatively if you have found a property the Landlord can refer you directly.
