In addition to the Emergency Scheme, we are able to offer Nightstop Plus to 16 and 17 year olds. Still free, secure and warm, accommodation for up to 21 nights is delivered by specially trained and enhanced level DBS-vetted volunteer hosts. Young people will be helped and encouraged with skills for independence.
It is intended to provide a breathing space for young people, and perhaps a social worker or family member(s) if applicable, until a longer term solution to the homelessness issue is found.
If you are 16 or 17 years old and have nowhere to stay and no social/support worker please go to:
Bradford - The Information Shop for Young People, Culture Fusion, 125 Thornton Road, Bradford BD1 2EP (5 mins walk from City Park)
Kirklees - Young People & Support Team, Housing Solutions Service, Customer Service Centre, Walsh Building, Town Hall Way, Dewsbury WF12 8EE; OR Civic Centre 3, Huddersfield
Nightstop Plus placements are arranged in partnership with the young person's social/support worker who are fully involved in the process.
If you are a worker and have a 16/17 year old who needs somewhere safe to sleep tonight please contact our referral line in the usual way. Please let our volunteer Telephone Contact Person know that you need a Nightstop Plus referral.
The young peron may be booked on to our emergency scheme whilst a Nightstop Plus placement is arranged.
