: Blackburn with Darwen

Who we are and what we do

Nightsafe is a charity supporting homeless young people aged 16-24 years. We are a charity based in Blackburn with Darwen providing holistic services to homeless and vulnerable young people across East Lancashire.

How we can support you

Our mission at Nightsafe is to work with young people who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness, to provide accommodation, day centre services and information, advice and guidance. We will help with emergency needs and empower our young people to play a positive part in their local community. Nightsafe believes that every young person has a right to a roof over their head, to live in a safe environment and be treated with kindness, dignity and respect.

How you can help us

DONATE MONEY: This year Nightsafe are celebrating our 30th Anniversary and have just launched our £100K appeal. This money will be used directly to continue in supporting young people. You can donate money via our just giving page: (click Donate Link in blue box)

DONATE TIME: Nightsafe utilises volunteers in a number of roles including volunteer mentors, night shelter volunteers, fundraising volunteers and special skills volunteers such as hairdressing and counselling. If you wish to find out more about volunteering, please get in touch with our volunteer co-ordinator:

DONATE CLOTHES: As a lot of young people come to us at a time of crisis, they often don’t have any spare clothes and we regularly provide them with essential items. Whilst we are very grateful for the donation of clean, age appropriate clothing in good condition we would prefer shopping vouchers to enable us to by what we what when we need it.

DONATE FOOD: We provide hundreds of meals each month in both our day centre and emergency night shelter. Donations help to supplement our small food budgets (£20 per week for the day centre and £7 per day for our night shelter), to ensure we provide healthy and nutritious meals to those who need it most. We also provide emergency food parcels. Again, whilst we are grateful for food donations, we would prefer supermarket vouchers to enable us to buy what we need when we need it.
