What We Do
General Needs Accommodation
New Walk CIC currently has 107 units of General Needs accommodation spread across Teesside, Country Durham, Hartlepool and Northumberland. Our accommodation ranges from studio bed flats to 3 bedroom houses.
We pride ourselves on our high quality accommodation and services which are affordable for people that may need them.
Although this accommodation isn’t supported, we strive to engage with tenants to ensure that they are comfortable in their living situation and will signpost to relevant agencies where appropriate.
In our Middlesbrough Scheme, we have 58 units spread across 6 buildings. 1 building is specifically designed for housing vulnerable women and has onsite support.
We have a contract with Middlesbrough Council to provide support to a number of clients to help them to move on into independent living.
In Middlesbrough, we offer a service called Needle Exchange Return Scheme, in which clients can exchange their used equipment for new, clean equipment.
We work alongside partner agencies such as drug and alcohol and harm reduction services, to provide support to clients.
New Walk CIC Stockton Scheme is open 365 days a year and staffed 24 hours a day. They are CCTV monitored 24/7 with a contracted security team who safeguard the buildings and residents after working hours.
Stockton has 110 units of accommodation spread across 10 properties which include one building with wheelchair access and an accessible wet room for people who have disabilities.
We specialise in accommodation for homeless vulnerable adults some of which may be socially excluded members of the community which may suffer with substance misuse issues, alcohol dependency and have challenging behaviours and complex needs, or people who are homeless from no fault of their own.
New Walk also works alongside Community Campus and Hartlepool Borough Council providing 18 units of accommodation in total (9 of which New Walk are responsible for) using the housing first model for those who are rough sleeping or are at risk of rough sleeping. We have a designated support worker who provides support to these clients with the aim of maintaining a tenancy and living independently within the community.
Across 16 local authorities, we have arms length partnerships with national care providers. This provides accommodation and care services for elderly and vulnerable people.
