Emergency Accomodation for Young Homeless People (16- 25 yrs of age)
Nightstop provides temporary emergency accommodation for homeless, vulnerable but also ‘low risk’ young people aged 16-25 years, in the homes of trained volunteers, on a one-night-at-a-time basis.
It is preventative & aims to help young people at the point of crisis while they still have links with their peers, or family in their local community.

Nightstop volunteers are ordinary people who are willing to open the door of their home to help young people in need, or who offer their time to help local Nightstop services in other ways. All volunteers have to undertake specific training before commencing their volunteering role with a local Nightstop.
Equally, an assessment is done on the client by the agency and sent to Nightstop with the referral. Nightstop would assess this along with 2 professional references by client to decide if suitable for placement.
