Housing (health and wellbeing needs in South Tyneside)

Unmet needs

In general some of the greatest issues that the borough faced in terms of unmet housing need are:

  • Lack of extra care or specialist older persons accommodation
  • Need for increasing number of adapted accommodation, for both aging population and disabled children
  • Higher levels of affordable, high quality single persons accommodation
  • Need for suitable supported accommodation for those who are unable to access the wider housing market due to their vulnerabilities
