With over 26,000 homes located across Newcastle, we provide high quality homes together with person-centred customer support and a passion for creating local communities that are great places to live.

We believe that everyone has the right to a safe, affordable home. We continually reinvest our money back into our homes, services and communities to create amazing places where people are proud to live.

When you apply for a home through us we will support you throughout the whole process, from helping you to understand what homes are available to you, to getting you settled in to your new home.

And we work hand-in-hand with our customers and it's their voices that inform the improvement and development of our services. You may like to get involved with our customer consultations so that your opinion can help us to make sure the customer voice is heard by decision makers.

Applying for a home

Applying for a home or garage with us is easy. Once you have registered on the Newcastle Homes website you can search and apply for homes and manage your applications online. We've put together some useful information on the application process and how our homes are allocated.
