Housing Plus consists of Sheltered, Extra Care, Supported Living, Community and Ostara. 

We provide a range of different properties that are designed to meet the needs of older people, including more traditional sheltered housing schemes, independent living in level access bungalows, assisted living and extra care schemes and accommodation specifically designed for people with dementia. The growing portfolio of properties across the City are specifically designed with amenities to suit changing needs to help people live independently in a home of their choice for as long as possible.

A Housing Plus Officer is based in each scheme to provide a welcome atmosphere, offer person-centred support, assistance with tenancy related matters, setting up utilities and bill payments and accessing other services and facilitating activities to provide opportunities for social interaction and improve feelings of happiness, comfort, safety and security.

Sheltered tenancies come with the added benefit and peace of mind provided by Ostara, to help people live safely and independently at home. We provide and install alarm equipment that is connected to our 24 hour response centre in Newcastle upon Tyne.  You can find more information at or by calling 0191 277 7470.

Extra care tenants also have the benefit of care providers available on site around the clock to meet their allocated care needs and look after their health and wellbeing. Some schemes have the convenience of café facilities too.

Our aim is to make living easier for you. The team provide excellent specialist support to customers aged 55+, to enable them to live independently in a home of choice, providing advice on housing options and support packages to meet their needs and aspirations.
