As we embark on 2018, we are making a renewed plea for more volunteer hosts across York, North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire.
Through our Nightstop service alone, in 2017 we were able to arrange a total of 1392 nights of emergency accommodation for very vulnerable young people who were facing homelessness, thanks to our wonderful volunteer hosts,
However, in some areas, we are particularly short of hosts to help us with our work. For example, in Harrogate which is our second busiest area after Scarborough, we have just two Nightstop hosts. We urgently need more people to come forward to help, not just with Nightsop, but also with our Supported Lodgings scheme which supports young people to independence over a longer period of time.
If you would like to find out more and apply to become a SASH host, there is lots more information on our Hosting page, or you can call us directly on 01904 652043.
If you think you might be able to help, please get in touch!
