Since 1973 we’ve been providing supported housing to vulnerable adults across the region. We have over 360 bed-spaces 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.
Our supported housing residents
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.
Over one-quarter of the people that live with us have an offending background or have been in prison. A snapshot taken on 31 March 2019 showed us that the primary presenting problems for supported housing residents were mainly struggles with their mental health (35%) or difficulty with drug or alcohol misuse (28%).
