We believe that no young person should sleep rough or have to spend the night in an unsafe place.


 Nightstop is a unique project where volunteer hosts provide a safe, welcoming place in their home for young people in crisis.


Our team of hosts provide emergency overnight accommodation for 1-3 nights for young homeless people aged 16-25 years.

They provide:

  • A private spare room

  • A hot meal

  • A shower

  • Laundry facilities

  • A listening ear

Nightstop UK is a network of 30 accredited Nightstop services throughout the UK.

“I felt nervous using Nightstop for the first time, but after my first night I felt better and felt I was being listened to and supported by the host.”

“My favourite part of Nightstop was having somewhere safe to sleep, and my least favourite part of Nightstop was staying with strangers”

“I don’t know what I would have done without Nightstop. I would have had to return home, where I felt unsafe. Thank you”

"I have been a volunteer Nightstop host for five years. I first heard about the service on a Children in Need programme and decided I wanted to help.


I was lucky enough to have had both parents to support me as well as an extended family, unlike a lot of other young people. 


I have to say that I love it! I do it for myself really. I suppose some people would be worried about having a stranger in their house. The reality is that these are just young people who are more nervous than me. Usually, they are whizzed in and out and I haven’t had any problems. Most of them are naturally quite tired so they have a shower after dinner and go to bed. 


All of the young people I have hosted are different. I haven’t experienced any behaviour issues or any aggression. Being such a young age this must be terrifying for them so I am happy to help when they need it."
