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 2011 Nightstop volunteer hosts gave over 140,000 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
