Sheltered accommodation in Tyne & Wear

Sheltered accommodation in Tyne & Wear, Hospital of St. Mary the Virgin

Subsidised, comfortable

We offer subsidised, comfortable, Sheltered accommodation in Tyne & Wear in two almshouses: Rye Hill (next to Newcastle College) and Thomas Horsley House at Benwell. Both locations also provide shared communal facilities.

Our long-standing charity provides Sheltered accommodation at these two sites for 58 single, economically or socially disadvantaged men, over the age of 50, who are inhabitants of the City of Newcastle upon Tyne and in certain circumstances from Tyne and Wear. While residents are expected to be capable of independent living, some may from time to time require temporary, short- term support, either because of their health, or because they have become vulnerable.
