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? Or would you choose the warmth and shelter of a house offered to you by a stranger?
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.
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.
By raising £600, you would pay for 40 nights of Nightstop - all through Lent.
