ADVICE for renters in Oxford will now be provided in Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and Italian after a £5,000 donation from a charity.

The city's Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) will be able to hand out copies of tenancy rights documents in the four languages after a donation for the TDS Charitable Foundation.

The CAB will also be able to share the same information on its website and partner platforms after the grant to help pay for translation.

The foundation, set up in 2014 to raise standards in the private rented sector, gave the money as part of nearly £300,000 worth of donations in the past year.

The organisation is mainly funded by donations from the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) which operates on a not-for-profit basis across the UK.

The TDS Charitable Foundation awards grants to encourage best practice in the management of private rented housing and education of landlords on their obligations.

It also seeks to promote the rights and responsibilities of tenants.

The Oxford CAB's efforts to help more people of diverse nationalities comes after all of the city's advice centre's pledged last year not to co-operate with the Home Office's aim to create a 'hostile environment' for illegal immigrants. They said: "We have not reported and will never report anyone who seeks our advice."
