Our Work


Nightstop is a unique project which relies on community hosting to provide a safe, welcoming place for young people in crisis.

Volunteer hosts open their homes to people who are facing a night on the streets or sleeping in an unsafe place.

Communities and charities run Nightstops in more than 30 locations around the UK, led and supported by the Nightstop team at Depaul UK.

In 2019, volunteers provided 9,103 safe nights of accommodation to 937 people across the Nightstop network
