We offer a mix of accommodation options in our supported and independent housing schemes.  They are:

Shared Houses

Ranging from small two-bed homes to ten-bedroom houses in Newcastle, Gateshead, Northumberland, North Tyneside or South Tyneside. Each resident is given keys to their own furnished room and shares communal facilities with other residents.

Shared Flats

Two people sharing communal facilities.  Each resident has their own furnished locking bedroom.

Self-contained Furnished Flats

We have a number of self-contained, single person flats.  This enables people to live in their own tenancy before progressing towards moving into mainstream housing.

We provide 31 emergency bed spaces for single homeless men and women at our hostel on Wilfred Street.  Each self-contained one-bed flat includes ensuite facilities.  Residents have access to a communal living and dining room, kitchen and laundry room.

Getting a Home

There are two options when applying for a home.  You can either contact us directly or you can be referred to us through your local authority depending on your circumstances.

If you would like to apply for general needs housing then you can contact us directly by calling 0191 265 8621, email or call into our head office.

If you require supported accommodation then, depending on which area you live in, you will be referred to us by your local authority based on your housing and support needs.

We can provide additional support to you to help you complete all the necessary paperwork and application forms and all residents will be asked to attend an informal interview so our housing officers can assess your housing and support needs. The interview will last for approximately 45 minutes to one hour at our head office or at one of our satellite offices in Newcastle, Gateshead, Northumberland, North Tyneside or South Tyneside.

If you have any questions about applying for a home with Tyne Housing, please call us, drop us an email or visit our head office and one of our experienced members of staff will be happy to help you.
