The Bond Board is a homeless charity that provides assistance to single people and families who are homeless or threatened with losing their home to access private rented accommodation and maintain their tenancy. Our work is carried out through a number of ways:
Written Deposit Guarantees -we provide written deposit guarantees that take the place of a cash deposit in Bolton and Rochdale, for those experiencing homelessness and who would otherwise be unable to secure private rented accommodation in the area.
Making the Link - we offer a support service for those living in the Private Rented Sector in Rochdale to help people maintain their tenancy and improve their general and economic well-being.
Bridging the Gap - this is our volunteer project that recruits and trains volunteers to support our service users in finding and setting up new tenancies and offering initial ad hoc support. We have helped a large number of our volunteers gain the skills and experience needed to gain employment.
Letting Out – through this project we have developed a sharing scheme for under 35 year olds, to make private rented accommodation affordable for this age group.
Step–up Rochdale - We are working with Petrus to deliver a No Second Night Out project in Rochdale, to reduce the number of people sleeping on the streets and reducing those arriving on the streets. We are doing this by providing access to starter tenancies for people to move in to at short notice.
Spare a room -This is our pilot lodgings scheme in Rochdale. Working in partnership with Petrus, we aim to deliver lodgings support to help people who are affected with rising living costs and have a spare room, as well as those who are seeking an affordable room to rent.
How you can make a difference …
All our services work holistically with homeless people, aiming to not just house people but to provide appropriate advice and support to enable them to successfully maintain their homes, increase independence and future prospects and to break the cycle of homelessness.
We would be most grateful for any donations, to enable us to continue helping people and families who are homeless or facing homelessness to secure a roof over their heads and receive advice and support to help them maintain their tenancies. Your donation will change someone’s life! Any amount we receive will make a real difference to someone who is homeless. Without your generosity, the work we do would not be possible.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
