Byker Bridge Housing & Support offers a varied range of supported housing, from shared houses with a residential worker, to single person flats with
visiting, day time support. BBHS also offer floating support to help people sustain their independent accommodation.
Most of our accommodation is in Newcastle but we also have properties in Gateshead, Forest Hall, Whitley Bay, Blyth, South Shields, Hebburn and Prudhoe.
All of our community houses have a named member of support staff available during normal working hours. Additionally we operate an out of hours, emergency
call out system to cover evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
At our accommodation we promote independent living through increasing skills, building confidence and self esteem. We aim to equip people with the skills
so if they wish they can move on to independent living. If residents/tenants are unable to move they can stay with the Association.
Support staff offer advice on benefits and budgeting, help with arranging appointments and maintenance of the property. Staff offer guidance and
assistance with cooking and domestic skills. It is the responsibility of the residents to keep their own home clean and tidy.
Each of our residents has a person centered support plan that uses the outcomes star system and is designed to provide holistic support.
