Devon charity receives funding to support Deaf tenants

Living Options Devon has received funding from the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) Charitable Foundation to develop a new scheme that will support Deaf tenants to understand their rights and responsibilities.

This is a 10-month project which will be delivered by Deaf-led Services to help Deaf people who use British Sign Language (BSL) to better understand the complicated private rental market. Deaf-Led Services will be able to provide information via BSL clips, which will be available on our website and other media network. They will also be sent directly to the Deaf community in Devon.
