Services gather for Nightstop conference

February 8th, 2018

Homelessness services from around the UK are meeting in Manchester today (Thursday, 8 February) for the annual Nightstop UK Conference.

The event brings together the charities and local organisations that operate Nightstop emergency overnight accommodation services for young homeless people.

Nightstop UK helps to prevent youth homelessness by placing people, mostly aged 16 to 25 years old, in the homes of trained and vetted volunteers.

A key speaker at the Conference at the GMCVO St. Thomas Centre in Ardwick Green, will be Tobiaz Brunning, Social Strategy Manager of People’s Postcode Lottery, whose players have provided substantial support for Nightstop UK.

Representatives of the first overseas Nightstop, in Canada, are also attending.

Homelessness charity Depaul UK runs Nightstop UK which now has 30 services around the UK, including one in Greater Manchester launched late last year by Mayor Andy Burnham.

Nicola Harwood, Depaul UK’s Associate Director, Prevention who heads up Nightstop, said: “The title of this year’s conference, More Than a Safe Place to Sleep, perfectly sums up the unique service provided by Nightstop UK.

“Its services offer young people a welcoming home, a listening ear, and the support they need to help them avoid long-term homelessness.

“The national conference gives Nightstop services the chance to come together, learn, and share experiences, so that young people continue to get the support they need from their local Nightstop.”

In 2017, the Nightstop network provided 11,070 bed-nights to 1,403 young people who would otherwise have spent the night sleeping rough or in other unsafe places.

Depaul UK joins PPL celebration

Depaul UK is delighted to have attended the 2018 People’s Postcode Lottery annual Charity Gala where it was announced that £93.4million was awarded to charities and good causes in 2017 – thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Depaul UK received an incredible £2,515,551 in 2017 which enabled it to increase the organisation’s homelessness prevention and community services developing support through Nightstop across the UK.

The significant funding also provides the charity with the ability to create a portfolio of properties providing support for young people or the potential for them to positively move forward.

Creating a tailored schools education package also provides vital awareness with the aim of preventing further youth homelessness.

In addition, Depaul UK is able to extend its community services offering young people the chance to prosper individually though our dedicated  programme, and the Get Up and Go programme delivering tailored education and employment training for young people engaged in Depaul’s services across the UK.

Depaul UK estimates that, with players of People’s Postcode Lottery support, by 2020 it will be able to extend its reach across the UK and provide 3,000 young people with supported accommodation and at least 20,000 nights of emergency accommodation.

As a result, Britain will also be a safer place for children who run away from home or are left without a safe place to sleep. With players’ support, Depaul UK will work toward no young person sleeping in an unsafe place.

The gala was a celebration of the phenomenal achievements of charities working across Britain and internationally that are supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The lottery also took the opportunity to announce an increase to 32 percent of each ticket sale going directly to good causes.

The news of the funding total and increase was shared at the annual event, on Tuesday, 23 January, at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh.

The event was attended by film star Emma Thompson, broadcaster Dermot Murnaghan and TV presenter Fiona Phillips. Entertainment on the night was provided by Heather Small.

Depaul UK Fundraising Director Joseph Howes said: “The incredible support from players of People's Postcode Lottery has provided Depaul UK with the ability to exponentially increase its scale of dedicated support and accommodation services.

“This means we can reach a greater number of young people supported across the UK ensuring those young people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness have the reassurance of a safe place to stay.

“On behalf of Depaul UK, I would like to extend our sincere thanks for the players’ incredible generosity and commitment in helping us end youth homelessness.”

Depaul 'shocked' by rough sleeping stats

January 25th, 2018

Depaul UK is “extremely disappointed” by the “shocking” rise in homelessness revealed today (25 January 2018) by Government statistics which show rough sleeping has soared by 15 percent over the past year.

The youth homelessness charity said the new data jeopardised the Government’s commitment to halve rough sleeping by 2022 – and means more action is needed to tackle the crisis.

Ian Brady, Depaul UK’s interim CEO and former government advisor on homelessness, said: “It is extremely worrying that the number of people sleeping rough continues to increase, despite the Government’s commitment to halve and eventually end rough sleeping.

“Without a determined response, we risk returning to the extremely high levels of rough sleeping we saw in the 1980s and 1990s.

“Rough sleeping has risen by 15 per cent overall and the 28 per cent rise in the number of young people sleeping rough is especially worrying.

“We know that young people take huge risks to avoid sleeping on the streets. These figures are therefore likely to be tip of the iceberg when it comes to the total number of young homeless people sleeping in unsafe places.”­

He added: “The Government has set up a Ministerial Taskforce to tackle homelessness and we have not heard of it meeting. It now urgently needs to take action.

“More investment in community hosting schemes such as Nightstop and supported lodgings would help to reduce the number of young people sleeping rough. These schemes enable members of the public to provide a bed for a young person who might otherwise end up on the streets.”

Depaul UK is also calling on the Government to invest in more family mediation services, which help young people remain in their family home, and to make further reforms to Universal Credit.
