Ashkirk Services

Ashkirk offers a range of services to support families to develop the skills and confidence that will help them to maintain or secure and sustain long term, independent accommodation.

We work with families and partner agencies to identify their support needs and then develop a package of support to address them. Families can self-refer or be referred by any agency, for example health services, social care services, police, probation or education.

Referrals are processed through Sunderland City Council’s Gateway and you can complete a referral by:

Contacting the council on: 0191 5205551

Contact Ashkirk directly on 0191 238 3215 or email

Once your referral has been received we will arrange to meet with you to discuss your needs further and assess if the Project is able to help you
