Nationwide Building Society Community Grant for PBHA Peer Landlord Project
Peter Bedford Housing Association is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a Nationwide Building Society Community Grants of £27,960 to fund a pilot Peer Landlord project.
Based on the pioneering work of Commonweal Housing, this will create shared accommodation based on a mutual support model whereby selected tenants act as peer mentors and first point of contact with the landlord. This will help provide accommodation to some of our younger beneficiaries, all of whom will be vulnerable adults who face reduced access to supported housing and few alternatives.
We are grateful for the support given to this valuable project by Nationwide Building Society. Our hope is this project will allow us to roll out Peer Landlord housing on a wider scale, giving younger vulnerable adults a path to greater independence.
