New A-Z guide on equality for landlords in Wales

A new A-Z guide based on equality and diversity has been produced for private landlords in Wales.

The guide, which can be downloaded here, covers a range of words, phrases and terminology around several equality and diversity issues.

It was produced in order to help landlords understand some of the common experiences that tenants may have so that they are able to  support them and maintain their tenancies.

The guide was formally launched at an event last month, which was sponsored by the Shadow Housing Minister in Wales Bethan Sayed AM, and was also attended by  the Minister for Housing and Regeneration in Wales Rebecca Evans AM.

Open Doors is a two year scheme that is managed by Tai Pawb and the RLA. It aims to provide landlords, tenants and lettings agents in the private rented sector with the knowledge, skills and the confidence to prevent and reduce discrimination and mistreatment in the sector.

Charity Tai Pawb, which promotes equality in housing, was awarded a £249,425 lottery grant last year to set up and run the Open Doors project, promoting equality in the PRS in the Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan and Merthyr Tydfil areas. You can read more about the difference that the project is making here.
