Young people

We support young people aged 16-25 to find a home, move in, and manage their tenancy. We provideyoung people with practical and emotional support and access to housing to prepare them for independence and achieving their full potential, as well as offering emergency accommodation and semi-independent living​.

We can offer supported accommodation or regular appointments in your own home.

We have two separate sites for young person's supported accommodation; a ten bed hostel at Lansdowne Crescent in Gosforth and a block of sixteen supported accommodation flats in North Kenton.
