Conwy Supported Lodgings and Nightstop

We need your help! Do you have a spare room? Can you offer support?

Supported Lodgings
Conwy supported lodgings have been commissioned by Conwy council to provide support for young people aged 16-21 from the county of Conwy, who through no fault of their own find themselves homeless and in need of support and accommodation.

If you have a spare room and can provide a room for a homeless young person. Plus, have an interest in teaching the young person to cook, clean, budget and provide emotional support to prepare them for independence; then we would really like to hear from you!

Nightstop
The scheme accredited by Depaul uk, covers the region of Conwy and commenced in Nov 2016.

Nightstop provides a safety net to vulnerable young people aged 16-21 at a difficult time in their lives, usually after a family breakdown and are forced to leave home.

Last year, the network of Nightstops in the UK helped over 5000 vulnerable young people and kept them from sleeping rough or staying in unsuitable accommodation, which put them at possible risk of abuse.

The use of spare rooms makes a huge positive difference to young people in crisis. The Nightstop scheme sees volunteer hosts provide a room, evening meal and a sympathetic ear to a young homeless person for one night or up to 3 weeks. Once engaged, Nightstop staff can then work with the young person and in partnership with other local agencies helping them address the issues that caused them to become homeless.

All householders are provided with a financial incentive to cover all costs of the young person and receive full training and ongoing support.

For further details or an informal chat about our service please call: 01492 576986 or 01352 700838
