Newport’s Supported Housing Gateway

This page explains what the supported housing Gateway is and how to access the service. 

The supported housing Gateway provides a single point of access and exit to and from supported housing in Newport and ensures the most appropriate accommodation for people. 

Access the Gateway

A Gateway surgery is held at the Information Station on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am and 12pm, please contact the Gateway co-ordinator below to confirm these times.

You can also make an appointment to discuss supported housing needs at other times.

Self-referrals are welcome although the co-ordinator may have to request further information from partner agencies.

Immediate accommodation cannot be guaranteed and an additional interview or assessment following the referral may be required.
