Gateway referrals are made when you need housing support. This referral is then sent to the housing support provider that has a space and best matches the support you need. The Gateway team keep a record of all the accommodation and support spaces that are available in North East Lincolnshire.
The housing support options via the Gateway for 16 to 25 year olds in North East Lincolnshire are:
In order to make a Gateway referral we will need your National Insurance number. If you have been issued a number but do not know what it is, you can apply for a copy of it here.
If you have previously applied for housing via Home Choice Lincs you will have been issued a Unique Reference Number. This number is also used to make Gateway referrals. Bringing this with you to our drop-in will speed things up.
Once a referral has been made, the Gateway team will send it to a housing provider who will then ring or email you to come in for an interview. Each provider has their own procedure for handling referrals and assessments.
