Resettle North East

We know that having stable accommodation goes a long way to helping people break the cycle of re-offending.

Resettle North East provides personalised one-to-one and group support for male clients in both custodial and community settings across the North East. 

Specialist workers source and secure accommodation to meet the individual needs of clients, including move-on from approved premises, bail accommodation or support settings. Those accessing the service are provided with support to sustain their tenancies and a personalised support plan to address any barriers too.

We give people the skills and support they need to find and maintain a home, avoiding the instability that can lead to re-offending.

If necessary, we also provide access to homelessness and rough sleeper support resources.
