Sheltered accommodation

The Gateshead Housing Company is committed to offering the best possible standards of housing service to tenants of all ages – in particular the borough’s older residents.

There are currently 38 sheltered accommodation sites across the borough, consisting of self-contained bedsits, flats and bungalows, and one extra-care scheme.

Each sheltered scheme has been specifically designed to meet the needs of older people and those with disabilities or special needs.

This includes access to services from our Sheltered Scheme Officers (SSOs), who live on-site to help with everyday queries and longer-term solutions, and Mobile Sheltered Scheme Officers (MSSOs) who travel across estates.
