Depaul Nightstop UK

Depaul Nightstop UK is a service of Depaul UK and supports a network of accredited Nightstop services throughout the United Kingdom, each providing safe emergency accommodation for homeless young people aged 16-25 in the homes of approved volunteer hosts.

In 2013 Nightstop provided 11,755 bed nights and volunteer hosts gave over 176,000 hours of their time.  A placement can be overnight or up to two weeks and can mark the first step out of homelessness for a young person.

If you are interested in becoming a Nightstop host please contact Ailsa McWilliam on 0207 939 1235 or email nightstopuk@depauluk.org

Depaul UK's Supported Lodgings Scheme provides longer term accommodation in a host's house. For further information click here
