Nightstop North East and cumbria places young people who have nowhere to stay in trained volunteers’ spare rooms.

Young people receive a private room, a warm meal and somewhere safe to stay for the night, while we look for a more permanent solution.

Nightstop North East and Cumbria is delivered by Depaul UK.


Local Information

This Nightstop service is run by Depaul UK and provides emergency accommodation in the homes of local volunteers for people over the age of 16 in the North East and young people aged from 16 to 25 in Cumbria on a night-by-night basis.

Our volunteers offer a safe haven providing a warm welcome, a home-cooked meal, a hot bath, toiletries, clean clothes and a listening ear to young people who are often feeling isolated, scared, abandoned and depressed.

They use their spare bedroom to keep young vulnerable people safe by providing an alternative to sleeping rough until a more permanent solution can be found.

We provide Nightstop emergency accommodation, longer term supported lodgings and advice and support.

If you need somewhere to stay tonight, please call 0800 028 36 74 for free between 9am and 4pm, from Monday to Friday.
