Welcome to WDGB

WDGB is a Charity which aims to provide homeless people in North Somerset with permanent accommodation in the private rental sector.  It issues bonds which are recognised by local landlords and these act in a similar way to a rent deposit, thus enabling clients to obtain a key to their own front door.  Since it began in 1996, WDGB has housed thousands of people and currently has over 500 people accommodated, many of whom are young people who fall outside of the responsibility of statutory local authority housing.

 

WDGB operates throughout North Somerset and aims to help local people.  WDGB also runs twice weekly drop-in "surgeries" for advice on housing and offers a signposting service (pointing to other services, charities and support which is available locally) for clients; it also provides support to landlords and coordinates activity between the various authorities.  Particular attention is given to the plight of Under 25 year olds and those who leave care.
