Tyne Housing Association provides a range of housing for vulnerable adults; from emergency accommodation for those who are street homeless to supported accommodation for those who are ready to move nearer to independence. To help reintegrate homeless people back into the community we also provide a range of support services including employment training at the Workshop and Better By Half projects. Additionally for those who are street homeless the Healthcare centre provides free services.
Rough sleepers can access the drop in and get a cup of tea, bath, clean clothes and medical services. Emergency accommodation provides a roof for those who have been sleeping rough. Once a residents immediate needs are addressed and they become more settled they can access supported housing in the community and employment training services. Once in training we can refer individuals to more specialised training or support them with looking for work.
Homeless men and women are offered the opportunity to improve their confidence, self esteem and skills. Assistance is offered in budgeting, shopping and cooking skills, social skills and how to manage a tenancy in order that they will move towards living independently in the community.
There are many opportunities to volunteer with Ouseburn Farm (managed by Tyne Housing Association). Opportunities include working with animals, horticulture, administration and working with vulnerable adults.
The Better By Half training project offers volunteering opportunities in hands on practical gardening, basic maintenance, administration and working with homeless/ex-homeless men and women.
