Homelessness services in Sunderland

Our aim is to work closely with homeless people over six months to help them gain the skills and knowledge they need to maintain a tenancy and a long-term home.

We work with homeless people to tackle the barriers to housing that they’ve faced previously. We help them with:

  • managing and maintaining a tenancy
  • budgeting and money skills
  • drug/alcohol misuse
  • physical health
  • meaningful use of time
  • emotional and mental health
  • self-care and living skills
  • motivation and taking responsibility.

We also provide an out-of-hours support service for customers. 

Colleagues help customers to make positive changes from the first day they come into the service. The team works with other organisations in Sunderland – such as the Rough Sleeper Action Group - to give customers the best possible start.
