Nightsafe has an emergency night Shelter for homeless young people aged 16 to 24.
The shelter is entirely staffed by our full-time volunteers. These volunteers are young people who come from different parts of the world to give their time and energy. They add another dimension to our project with young people giving help, support and encouragement to young people who are homeless and in need. The volunteers also introduce the young people to different cultures and ideas.
Volunteers come to Nightsafe for between 6 months and a year, during this time we provide pocket money and food allowance and pay for their accommodation and bills. The volunteers
gain from our training and support and the young people
gain positive role models who are there to listen and offer the practical help they need to get back on track. Both volunteers and young people learn from each other’s backgrounds and grow in understanding and tolerance.
We are seeking £3900
to fund one volunteer for 12 months. Nightsafe depends on the support of its community to continue helping young people off the streets. You could become part of that community
by supporting this project. Through supporting one volunteer at Nightsafe
you could help shape and influence the lives of many homeless young people in a very positive and meaning full way. As one volunteer said: ‘Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work here. I truly learned a lot from the amazing staff and young people. It’s a priceless experience for me. I’m glad that I got to be a part of this warm family.’ Young person’s comment: “Being homeless is a struggle and Nightsafe offer that warm hug most wanted in that situation”
