Homelessness Charter

Gateshead Council is committed to preventing and ending homelessness in all its forms. We know that to achieve this, we need to be ambitious, collaborative and focused.

The Gateshead Homelessness Charter has been developed to support the delivery of our plans to prevent and end homelessness. It has been co-produced with homeless people, service providers, and a wide range of stakeholders from within and outside the council, including health partners and landlords. It sets out our vision, principles and commitments.

We invite you to sign up to the charter, and to show your support for our ambition of preventing and ending homelessness in Gateshead.
