Opened early 2020, the Progression Hub exists to provide a dedicated space where Tyne, and partners, can deliver services, training and more informal activities to our residents, visitors and other individuals who are facing or are at risk of, homelessness.
Funded by our friends and partners at Newcastle City Council, the hub is located above our Joseph Cowen Health Centre at our Wilfred Street Site in Byker. Comfortably accommodating up to 30 people, the space has been created in order to be flexible to the needs of those using it. It’s made up of two group work areas and is fully equipped with Smart TV’s and Wi-Fi facilities as well as a small refreshment kitchen and fold away table tennis equipment which hosts our monthly resident/visitor games.
So far the hub has hosted a number of courses, training and further activities from Tyne and partners such as Crisis Skylight and the Northern Learning Trust. We’re keen to develop our offering further so we’re able to provide more opportunity for people at risk of, or facing homelessness to develop new skills, make friends and build their confidence. If you or your organisation is interested in getting involved then please do let us know.
