Do you have a spare room?

Spare roomIf you have a spare room could you consider offering it, for one night at a time, to a young person whose alternative is a night on the streets? We have been doing this for about a year now and it’s so easy – you let Nightstop (a charity run by Depaul UK) know the nights you are available, if a young person needs a bed you hear a little about them and then can say yes or no, they arrive at the time you agree, you give them supper, a warm bed for the night and breakfast in the morning and off they go having had a safe and comfortable night’s sleep.

 

See this article in the Guardian for more details, and contact Nightstop if you think this is something you can do – I hope you can as it’s such a simple way to make a really importance difference.
