Nightstop tackles youth homelessness by providing emergency overnight accommodation for young people who are facing a night on the streets or sleeping in an unsafe place.
At Nightstop, we believe that no young person should sleep rough or have to spend the night in an unsafe place. Nightstop is a unique project which relies on community hosting to provide a safe, welcoming place for young people in crisis. Volunteer hosts, who are ordinary members of the community, open their homes to young people aged from 16 to 25 years, offering:
• A private spare room
• A hot meal
• A shower
• Laundry facilities
• A listening ear
We believe that no young person should sleep in an unsafe place, no matter where they are in the country. That’s what gets us out of bed every day and keeps us doing what we do.
Nightstop wants to reach as many young people as possible and provide them with a safe place to sleep. To do this, we collaborate with other organisations.
We believe the community is the answer to youth homelessness. By working with in communities, we will ensure that no young person sleeps in an unsafe place ever again.
