Askins Lodge is a high quality, purpose-built supported accommodation project, located in Hebburn, serving the whole of South Tyneside.
Askins is staffed 24 hours a day and comprises 18 comfortable, fully furnished, en suite bedrooms; 2 communal lounges; a spacious and well-equipped residents’ kitchen; a gym; an education/training room; mediation suite, and a large private garden with patio terrace.
With a hall of residence type feel, and a range of on-site activities, Askins has been a huge success and gone some way to addressing the shortage of accommodation for vulnerable young people in the borough. During a typical year, we would expect approximately 30 young people to be accommodated and supported there.
The acquisition of this flagship property has enabled us to help young people with a wider range of needs. We can provide emergency beds for those with immediate need, and temporary accommodation, for up to 6 weeks, for young people in conflict with their parents and/or experiencing family breakdown.
