IS Nightstop a Homeless Shelter?

Nightstop Hertfordshire offers free emergency accommodation for people aged 16-25 across Hertfordshire in the homes of trained and vetted volunteer hosts, keeping young people out of traditional homeless shelters. Volunteer hosts open up their homes to provide this accommodation, with the support of Nightstop Hertfordshire staff. The service is part of Depaul UK, a national homelessness charity with a focus on young people.

Referrals can also be made by other professionals and agencies including but not limited to medical professionals, school, college or university staff, social workers and support workers.


How long can you stay at a Nightstop in Hertfordshire?

Placements last for between one night and four weeks, during which time Nightstop Hertfordshire staff support guests to find more permanent accommodation. Guests will usually stay with more than one host during a placement.

Young people are given a private room, a warm meal and access to washing facilities in a safe home, while we look for a more permanent solution. They are also given breakfast in the morning, and a packed lunch if they need one.
