EALING Equality Council has received £3,612 from the TDS Charitable Foundation to provide free specialist advice for tenants in the often-complicated private rental market.

Tenancy Advice and Guidance Surgeries (TAGS) is an initiative that will deliver 24 guidance surgeries from a pop-up location on Haven Green, Ealing Broadway.

The advice service will help tenants to better understand their tenancy agreement as well as their rights and responsibilities.

The TDS Charitable Foundation was set up by TDS, the UK’s leading tenancy deposit protection scheme to improve standards in the private rented sector.
