Tyne Housing

Since 1973, Tyne has stood by the North East’s most vulnerable people. Through our housing, support, healthcare, training and investment in communities, we help to get people to a better place.

Byker Bridge House is our emergency accommodation provision in Newcastle. It’s staffed 24/7 by a team of specialist housing and support workers and offers 31 short-term bed spaces to adults facing homelessness across the city. People who come to Byker Bridge House tend to be at crisis point and are referred to us from services such as prison, probation or hospital via Newcastle City Council’s Housing Advice Centre.

This post is an exciting new role for the organisation and for the city. Developed in partnership with Newcastle City Council, the position forms part of the MHCLG Rough Sleeping Strategy. Initially funded for one year, we expect to show that it is a vital element of ending homelessness across Newcastle and that the funding will continue.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to change the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our city, managing a passionate team that is at the forefront of homelessness services. You will build strong relationships and links with external agencies to ensure residents of Byker Bridge House have effective progression plans for rapid re-housing and establish effective pathways out of temporary accommodation with a range of different providers.
