Nightstop allows our partner providers the breathing space to work towards the most appropriate longer-term plan for the younger person.
Nightstop is the stopping block to the downward spiral (of homelessness). It’s the place we go to when we have an emergency we can’t meet. They give us the time we need to find a space in the Foyer. They also house young people we have to ask to leave - Manager, Centrepoint
Bradford Nightstop has strong links with statutory and non-statutory organisations in and around Bradford, including:
Nightstop is a member of Bradford Cares and the Cold Weather Provision network of agencies in Bradford who provide additional accommodation on evenings when the temperature is predicted to be zero degrees or below.
The city would be worse without Nightstop. They stop us having to put young people into bed and breakfast and there is nothing suitable about that - Bradford Council Leaving Care
Affiliated to Depaul UK, Bradford Nightstop is part of a network of emergency accommodation providers across the UK who share knowledge and experience. A quality standard is a prerequisite for affiliation. For more information visit the website.
Making young people feel cared for seems to be a very important feature of Nightstop’s work. It’s what young people remember. They behave amazingly well in hosts’ homes and treat them with respect. They know it’s a last chance - West Yorkshire Police
