Become a Nightstop MK Volunteer

Nightstop in Milton Keynes relies on the generosity of volunteer hosts and drivers. The hosts offer their spare bedrooms on a night-by-night basis, and receive expenses payments to cover the additional cost of having another person in the house. The drivers collect the guests from an arranged location and take them to their accommodation for the night.
