Nightstop North-east Scotland, which supports young people at risk of homelessness across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are looking for hosts who can offer a spare room to a young person in need.
Operated by Aberdeen Foyer, Nightstop prevents youth homelessness by offering respite and family support.
Clear Channel UK are supporting Nightstop North-East Scotland’s host recruitment by displaying Nightstop adverts on their screens across Aberdeen.
Megan Douglas, Nightstop North-East Scotland Co-ordinator, says:
‘We’re so grateful to Clear Channel for this opportunity and we have received great feedback on the campaign. We’re encouraging people who have a spare room to get in touch to find out more about Nightstop. We offer full training, 24/7 on-call support and we ensure that young people who use Nightstop meet our low-risk criteria.
The young people that we support through the Nightstop Network can often be going through a difficult time at home and the difference that respite, mediation and guidance can make to a young person’s life is huge.
We work with people experiencing hidden homelessness, young people who don’t have a safe, secure place to stay, they might stay with friends or sofa surf. Living like this poses extraordinary risks.
If you are worried about where you’ll be sleeping, how can you focus on anything else in life? Whether that’s your health, mental health, your relationships, your education, or employment.
It’s vital that young people know that they’re not alone, that this is temporary, and there is help out there.”
Adverts can be seen on Clear Channel bus stops across Aberdeen City, with the message being Your Spare Room, Their Fresh Start.
