Nightstop Scheme

This scheme relies on Hosts in the local community to help provide emergency accommodation on a night by night basis to vulnerable young people at risk of homelessness.

The Vision for Nightstop is that no young person should sleep in an unsafe place, ever.

Our ‘Nightstop’ schemes, accredited by and established in line with the national DePaul model, help ensure all young people across Birmingham, Solihull and Coventry have a safe home to go to.

Nightstop takes away much of the risk associated with helping a ‘stranger’ as these young people are already known to us, have had a full assessment including a risk assessment and a thorough matching process is applied to any posting.

St Basils Nightstop service is run by the same team who have already been running very successful Supported Lodgings schemes across Birmingham, Solihull, Worcestershire and Coventry, where young people also stay with a Host but for several months and receive support from both the host and St Basils staff.
