Housing and Homelessness
Introduction to Service
This project's aim is to assist single homeless men and women in their final steps towards independence by placing them in their own flat within the community. The placement is designed as short-term accommodation, with floating support to aid the individual in preparing to manage a tenancy on their own without support.
People in the service can sign a license agreement for up to one year and would have the responsibility of paying their own electric, gas and council tax bills and the service charge.
Each flat is furnished for a single individual to live in.
- Support plans tailored to the needs of the individual
- Support in connecting with local services, ie GP, dentist
- Support in applying for long-term accommodation through Tyne & Wear Homes and the private rented sector
- Support individual to maintain an accommodation in readiness for their own tenancy
