Action Foundation is the only organisation in Tyne and Wear specifically set up to provide supported accommodation for destitute asylum seekers who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF). We lease properties from private landlords and sublet them free of charge to vulnerable asylum seekers with NRPF. We also run a Hosting scheme for this client group matching them with people who we have recruited and trained to provide a room in their home. We also provide supported, private rented accommodation to new refugees in Tyne and Wear who become homeless following their positive asylum decision. We currently operate in Newcastle, Gateshead, Washington and Sunderland.
For our residents and any other migrants that cannot access English Language (ESOL) classes we also provide this in our classrooms in Newcastle and Sunderland.
