Drivers and chaperones
Nightstop prevents homelessness through hosting. It helps people who are in immediate housing crisis by providing safe accommodation in the homes of vetted volunteers called "hosts".
Many young people who stay with Nightstop have to travel from one side of a town to another, to get to their host's home for that evening. This can be a daunting experience, so we rely on volunteer drivers or chaperones to help us.
The volunteer drivers will meet the guest at the pre-arranged place, drive them to the volunteer host’s home, introduce them to their host and then calls the project to confirm that the person has arrived safely.
In areas with better public transport, volunteer chaperones can travel with the young person on public transport to accompany them to their home for that evening.
Drivers and chaperones are trained and supported by Depaul UK and are reimbursed for expenses incurred.
If you think you can help put our guests at ease, provide a listening ear, and ensure they arrive safely at their host's home for that evening, and would like to find out more, please get in touch.
