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.

Nightstop provides safe nights of accommodation for homeless young people in the homes of vetted volunteers. Each night costs just £15.

This Lent in Hexham and Newcastle we are aiming to raise £7,000 to provide another 500 nights of safety.

Sign up as an individual before the start of Lent to join the campaign.
