If you are currently supporting a resident who is interested and meets the eligibility criteria detailed above, please make a referral via Newcastle City Council’s Gateway database and complete a new ‘Needs Assessment Form’ for your resident.
Please note, under the accommodation tab in the needs assessment form detail, you must select ‘Dispersed housing visiting staff’ as the type of accommodation your client requires and select ‘6-9 hours per week’ as the level of support required.
All referrals completed on the Gateway are received in the first instance by Newcastle City Council’s Active Inclusion staff who will decide if the referral may be approved for RSAP before forwarding it to Tyne Housing’s Rapid Rehousing team. If the assessment is approved, the Active Inclusion Team will forward the referral to Tyne Housing Association’s Rapid Rehousing team who will determine if the client can be accepted onto the RSAP programme. The Rapid Rehousing team will contact the referring agency with their decision and to discuss the next steps. To ensure Active Inclusion know that you want to refer to the RSAP programme, when selecting the type of accommodation on the front of the Gateway needs assessment form please write ‘Tyne Housing RSAP’ in the free text box
