Richmond Fellowship’s Newcastle Supported Housing Service is tailored for each individual using the service. The ultimate goal is to help you manage your accommodation and assist you back into independent living and the wider community.
What we do
We provide supported housing to individuals with mental ill health for 2 years.
We understand the need for flexibility and on occasions individuals may stay less than 2 years or longer than 2 years.
Our primary focus is to provide tailored support to meet the needs of individuals who access our service.
We aim to support our tenants both emotionally and practically to develop life skills, to enable them to sustain their supported housing tenancy, and eventually move on to independent living, in a planned way.
Our service provides 25 properties in the East End of the city leased from Your Homes Newcastle and Byker Community Trust.
Who we help
We support individuals aged 18 or over, with a mental health diagnosis.
Referrals for our supported tenancies are usually made through Newcastle City Council’s Active Inclusion Unit based at the Housing Advice Centre.
Richmond Fellowship is part of Recovery Focus, a group of charities with the shared aim to Inspire Recovery Together.
