Nightstop offers emergency temporary accommodation for 18-25’s by providing a safe, supportive bed for the night in the home of a host volunteer.

Here, a young person in need of emergency accommodation will get a room of their own, an evening meal, breakfast, access to wash facilities and a friendly host.

Our staff assist the young person as they explore their housing options or support them to return to the family home.
A young person can stay for 1 to 7 nights giving themselves and partner agencies the opportunity to look for appropriate housing.

Are you 18 – 25 yrs in need of accommodation tonight?

Nightstop accepts people who are between 18-25yrs and have nowhere to stay.

Contact us or pop in and see us.

Unfortunately Nightstop cannot offer you accommodation if you are under the influence of alcohol, illegal substances or you have acute mental health issues and/or violent or aggressive behaviour.

We cannot accept someone absconding from custody and/or care.

We need hosts

To be able to offer this invaluable service to young people we need hosts. Hosts receive reimbursement for their expenses. If you can offer a room to a young person and are interested in becoming a host please contact us for an information pack or informal chat
