Do you need our help?
If you are aged 16-25 and homeless we may be able to help. Subject to our criteria and availability, accommodation can be offered to you in the homes of our volunteers.
We work alongside YMCA DownsLink Group Youth Advice Centre (YAC) who run a drop in service offering support and advice to young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The drop-in is open Monday-Friday 9am-12pm. Visit them at 11 St Georges Place, Brighton BN1 4GB. Or call 01273 624432 or email [email protected]. We are unable to take self referrals.
While staying in Nightstop, you will work with housing support services to secure long term housing.
Nightstop placements can also be arranged through your Social Worker.
If you live outside of Brighton and Hove please contact your local council for housing advice.
If you are over 26 please refer to the information on our Adult Service page.
When staying with our hosts, you can expect: Your own private bedroom, an evening meal and breakfast when you leave in the morning, somewhere you can wash your clothes and have a bath or shower, bus tickets to cover your journey to and from your host’s home, a ‘listening ear’ or some space to yourself. A befriender can also take you to your hosts home, so you don’t have to go to a strangers home alone.
Accommodation is arranged on a night by night basis to begin with, once we know more about your situation it is possible to offer longer-term placements with hosts.
