Depaul North Tyneside Outreach Service was formally known as Inline and Insite, an established Outreach Service based in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside. The Outreach team work with 118 young people living in the community in North Tyneside. The Outreach Service has exclusive access to 24 Care and support tenancies with ISOS Housing Association and 6 properties with Stonham Home Housing Association. This allows for us to house people that would have very little opportunity of accessing an independent tenancy on their own.
The Outreach Service has two resettlement properties where young people share a 4 bedroom house and 2 bedroomed upstairs and down stairs flats which are visited on a daily basis by the team. The aim is to move them onto independent living from these properties. Moving into your own tenancy is a very daunting time for young people. Often they are given the keys and expected to move in the next day with little more than a black bag of clothes to take with them. The Outreach team support them to access furniture and set up their home. Support is offered to set up all of the utilities accounts and relevant benefits if needed. The Outreach team provide ongoing support to help young people to maintain the tenancy. They will devise a support plan to meet the individual needs of the person. The Outreach Service also has a Private Rented Scheme that allows young people with multiple needs to live in private landlord tenancies.
