Dear Koolesh Shah,
Thank you for your recent donation. Open Homes is a charity that aims to provide accommodation for 16-25-year olds who are homeless or living in inappropriate accommodation.
Our main project is Nottingham Night stop, which provides emergency accommodation in the homes of trained volunteer hosts and is affiliated to DePaul Nightstop UK.
Nottingham Nightstop provides emergency accommodation on a night-by-night basis in our volunteer hosts’ homes, preventing the young person from ending up rough sleeping or staying in unsafe accommodation. We have a team of volunteer drivers who collect the young person in the evening and take them to their host’s house. All our volunteers are DBS checked and fully trained.
In 2020 we successfully hosted 28 young people for 157 Night stop bed nights.
Without your support – particularly at this critical time – we could not empower so many 16 – 25-year olds who are homeless or living in inappropriate accommodation.
Once again from all of us, thank you for your support.
Megan Towers – Project Manager
