Finding a home


Tyne and Wear Homes logo

Thinking about moving home?

Tyne and Wear Homes is a partnership between housing organisations in the area. It means you can now apply for homes right across the region, not just in Newcastle It is a much easier way to find out about your housing options and apply for a home all in one place. Your Homes Newcastle is part of the Tyne and Wear partnership. In Newcastle, our Housing Options team manages the Allocations and Lettings Policy on behalf of Newcastle City Council.  Below is a link to the Allocations and Lettings Policy: 

What do you need to do?

The first thing you should do is complete a Housing Options Assessment.  This tells you what we can do to help you.  As well as housing, it will give you advice on what support is available and can even help you search for jobs or training.  You can complete this yourself on line.

If you want to make an application for social housing you can use our on-line application form.  If you have already made an application and have a membership number you can login to your own private area to see your information, make bids or send and receive messages.  You can do this by going to Login/My Account.

When you apply our Housing Options Team will support you to understand what homes are available to you.  They will make sure any home you choose is affordable and provide support and training to so you can manage your new home successfully.

Health and Housing Support

In some instances we can offer dedicated support with rehousing through our Health and Housing Support Service.  They can offer assistance if you have a specific health need, require adaptations to your home or need relocation support.
