Forty Nights of Nightstop | Depaulcharity

Depaul helps people who are homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged.

Forty Nights of Nightstop

Every night, young people across the UK find themselves without a bed. Their options are limited and often dangerous. Would you sleep on the streets?

Young people face these impossible decisions, sometimes every day. The number of homeless people has doubled in the UK since 2010 and young people are often the most affected.

Depaul UK provides emergency accommodation in warm and safe houses across the UK. By placing young people in the homes of trained and vetted volunteers, we are able to keep them away from the dangers of the streets long enough to find them longer term support and a chance for a secure, safe future.

This Lent, walk with homeless young people through Forty Nights of Nightstop.

Just £15 provides a safe night for a young person, paying a volunteer Nightstop host the expenses to cover a hot, home-cooked meal, hospitality and a bath or shower.

Challenge yourself personally, take on the challenge in a small group or get your whole church involved.
