We have a range of studio, one and two bed apartments and bungalows available to let. Many Housing Plus homes have recently been refurbished to a high standard. All our properties benefit from the following:
emergency alarm system
level access shower or bath
safe by design front doors
private kitchen and bathroom
In addition to your own home, we also provide a range of shared services for our residents. These facilities are for everyone to use and enjoy and may include:
shared lounge with television
multi-function room with hairdressing facilities
Every Housing Plus home is linked to a 24 hour warden call service via an emergency pull cord system. If you need emergency help you can pull this cord and someone from South Tyneside Council's Telecare and Community Alarm Service will respond. This service also provides other equipment to support your independent living including smoke detectors, flood detectors, fall detectors and medication reminders.
We know that it is sometimes daunting when you are thinking of moving and we are here to provide you with a one stop service.
We can support you with everything from finding out information to filling in the forms.
Our friendly team will take you through every step. Don't hesitate to pick up the phone and find out how we can help.
We have a number of vacancies in our Housing Plus schemes.
