Housing

More than a roof

We have over 360 bed-spaces across the region made up of shared houses, specialist supported provisions, smaller shared flats and self-contained flats. Our housing model is always designed to focus on the individual’s own personal needs, meeting them where they are, building a trusting relationship and working together in partnership to get to a better place.

The majority of people who live with us at Tyne have experienced complex issues in their lives and often come to us after being excluded from other housing options due to their lifestyle, offending history or difficulties in managing finances. Most residents have experienced periods of homelessness or unstable housing and struggle with multiple social and health issues relating to addiction and mental wellbeing.

Our Model of Support

Our model of support is the framework that underpins our work. Created in partnership with our residents, colleagues and key stakeholders, it presents a collaborative approach, built through learning, research, consultation and years of experience in delivering front-line services to those with varied and complex needs.

Byker Bridge House

Byker Bridge House is our emergency accommodation provision in Newcastle. It’s staffed 24/7 by a team of specialist housing and support workers and offers 31 short-term bed spaces to adults facing homelessness across the city.

Supported Housing

Our supported housing model is designed to focus on each individual’s personal strengths and needs, meeting them where they are, building a trusting relationship and working together in partnership to get to a better place.

Westbridge

Westbridge Mental Health resettlement service is a unique partnership between ourselves and Northumberland and Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust. It provides specialist residential and clinical support for up to 12 adults who have been discharged from secure mental health hospitals, or prison with the aim to help integration back into the community.

The Move-on project

Developed in partnership with Homes England, the move-on project is our new initiative providing affordable living and support for people looking to move on towards employment and independent living.
