The PRS needs a dedicated research centre

TDS Charitable Foundation is aiming to back a new research centre

The Negotiator

The Foundation works to advance education about housing rights and obligations in the private rented sector.

Martin Partington imageMaking the announcement, Martin Partington (left), 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.”

“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 February 2016. Organisations can download an application form and view the bidding criteria online at www.tdsfoundation.org.uk
