Nightstop North-East Scotland offers temporary, emergency accommodation for young people facing homelessness. A young person accessing this service could be facing homelessness for any number of reasons, with 75% of referrals being due to a breakdown of relationships at home. This accommodation is offered in the homes of trained and vetted volunteers, who are supported by professional staff. Hosts can be anyone, with the only requirements being that they must be able to provide a spare room, a hot evening meal and a listening ear. This offers an accommodation option which may be more suitable for young people than traditional homeless hostels.
Nightstop are currently looking for volunteer hosts. Hosts are offered a £15 stipend per night when Hosting and 24/7 on-call support is available throughout the stay.
If you can help/for further details please contact Megan Douglas, Nightstop Co-ordinator, Aberdeen Foyer at email: Megan.Douglas@aberdeenfoyer.com or telephone 07467 919813.
All young people need a home, support and a springboard into independent living, learning and work. Some don't have it. Aberdeen Foyer helps fill the gap. The Foyer is a charitable organisation supporting people in the North East of Scotland towards independent living, learning and work.
