Why do we need host families?
Without our host families we would not have a Nightstop service. Our hosts make the young persons experience more comfortable when they are going through a very vulnerable stage of their lives.
What could it bring to you?
The experience of taking in a young person in need and helping them overcome some of their difficulties can be very fulfilling. Many of our hosts are families whose children have left home, they have a spare room and wish to help young people less fortunate than themselves.
The link below is an audio interview with one of our long term hosts Alison who talks of her experience of being a host and supporting our young people.

Hi, I manage all the arrangements with the host families when they host a young person. Their recruitment, training and ongoing checks are core parts of my role to ensure that the young person and the hosts are matched to make the experience a success for all.
