Nightstop Dorset places young people aged 16-25 in the homes of volunteer hosts.

Nightstop Dorset is an emergency accommodation service delivered by a local charity and covers Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, and Dorset.

Nightstop hosts provide a private room, a warm meal and somewhere safe to stay for the night, whilst Nightstop helps to find a permanent solution to a young person’s homelessness.

If you are a young person in need of somewhere safe to stay tonight:

Call 01202 525643 between 10am and 4pm Monday to Thursday, and between 10am and 3pm on Friday
