The centre runs three separate emergency services for homeless young people aged 12-18.
What we offer
- The Nightlight Project, a crisis service which young people can turn to when in desperate need.
- The Emergency Reception Centre, which can provide food, shelter and support for up to 14 young people
- Emergency crisis beds, seven individual bedrooms which are available each night for any young person who would otherwise be at risk of sleeping rough.
A holiday is arranged annually for the young people accessing this service, which promotes the development of meaningful relationships with residents and staff. Activities promoting physical and mental health are available for young people as well as a focus on building self-esteem.
The staff on the Nightlight project work with very complex young people who present with a vast array of issues including mental health concerns, substance misuse and family breakdown. This service is constantly evolving to meet the demands of those who access it. A health promotion programme has been introduced with good client involvement.

Seeing people, not labels.
Homelessness is a reality of our society. From street homelessness to those battling addiction, the services we offer put the person and their needs at the centre of their support - enabling people to take control of their life circumstances.
Enabling people to move forward with their lives, whether in the UK or back in their home country
