About Us

Nightstop provides emergency overnight accommodation for young homeless people who are facing a night on the streets or sleeping in an unsafe place.

Communities and charities run Nightstops in more than 31 locations around the UK, led and supported by the Nightstop team at Depaul UK.

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

In 2018, our 603 volunteer homes helped provide a safe place to spend the night to 1,224  young people.

Nightstop offers young people a place of safety in more than 31 towns and cities around the UK. Find your nearest Nightstop here.
