Gifford House

Housing and Homelessness

Introduction to Service

At our site in Gateshead residents have their own room, with access to communal facilities. Support is available on-site 24-hours a day, to help residents with day-to-day living and the development of confidence and skills for independent living at their own pace.

We aim to signpost people to help them with whatever issues they may be facing. These issues can be wide-ranging and may include drug and alcohol misuse, gambling, debts including previous rent arrears, relationship breakdowns and mental health issues.

People can live at Gifford House for up to two years, during which time we will try to encourage getting involved with training and preparation for employment.
