Can you help us prevent Youth homelessness?
Nightstop
Nightstop is a free service which provides emergency short-term accommodation for 16-25 year olds in the homes of volunteer hosts.  There they are provided with a hot meal, a bed in a room of their own, breakfast the following morning and the chance to bath/shower or wash clothes.

Greenwich & Lewisham Nightstop is one of over 30 member schemes of Nightstop UK, a national charitable organisation which works together with local communities towards the prevention of youth homelessness.  Because ...

"Homeless young people are vulnerable from day one of their homelessness.   This vulnerability leaves them exposed to the risk of further exploitation through drugs, prostitution and crime.  The provision of emergency accommodation should not be underestimated in providing a place of safety and security, a 'breathing space' to consider one's personal situation and an opportunity to talk things through with caring voluntary accommodation providers.  Nightstop is, therefore, about helping some of the most at risk young people in Britain today." [Nightstop National Network annual report 1998]
