Situation

Homelessness among young people is a big problem in Nottingham, and if those vulnerable young people are not helped they run the risk of being drawn into the dangers associated with rough sleeping - substance misuse, crime, abuse and sex work.

Solution

Nottingham Nighstop, the main project under Open Homes Nottingham, provides safe emergency overnight accommodation in the homes of trained volunteer families, to young people who are at the point of being homeless or who are living in inappropriate accommodation. Nottingham Nightstop works alongside various trained referral agencies in supporting the young people to find appropriate accommodation to move on to.
