TDS Charitable Foundation looking to back research centre

Posted on


The Trustees of the TDS Charitable Foundation have announced that the Foundation is seeking expressions of interest from organisations looking to establish a dedicated research centre for the private rented sector in England and Wales. The Foundation works to advance education about housing rights and obligations in the private rented sector.

Making the announcement, Martin Partington, Chair of the Charitable Foundation said

“Since we established the charity in 2013, we’ve been overwhelmed with organisations seeking funding for a whole range of projects, but it has become quite apparent that there is a real gap in proper research in the PRS.”

He continued;

“The Trustees are concerned that there isn’t a dedicated centre for research and often when information is available, it appears in quite a fragmented way.”

The TDS Charitable Foundation would be interested in receiving proposals for funding a feasibility study as to whether such a centre could be established for England and Wales.

The Foundation is currently welcoming bids for the next round of funding which is open until the end of March 2016. Organisations can download an application form and view the bidding criteria online at
