Get Involved


Nightstop volunteer hosts open their homes to young homeless people facing a night on the streets or sleeping in an unsafe place. Volunteer drivers and chaperones ensure these young people get to a place of safety.

It is a unique project which relies on community hosting to provide a safe, welcoming place for young homeless people in crisis.

Communities and charities run Nightstop services in more than 30 locations around the UK, led and supported by the Nightstop team at Depaul UK, a national charity for homeless people.

In 2019, volunteers provided 9,103 safe nights of accommodation to 937 people across the Nightstop network.
