Charity description

OPEN HOMES NOTTINGHAM logo
Open Homes Nottingham (previously 58i) is a charity that seeks to provide accommodation for 16-25 year olds who are homeless or living in inappropriate accommodation. Our main project currently is Nottingham Nightstop, which provides emergency accommodation in the homes of trained volunteer hosts and is affiliated to Depaul Nightstop UK.

All of the accommodation we offer provides the homeless young person not just with a roof over their head but with a stable and friendly host family or community of peers to ensure that they will be safe and welcomed into their new home.

We believe that the best route out of homelessness is through a stable and nurturing environment and our individual placements aim to avoid the issues that can arise when placing a number of different people with varying levels of support needs together.

We believe that being welcomed into healthy families and communities is a helpful way for homeless young people to move on to a more positive future.

Open Homes Nottingham's (previously 58i) main project is Nottingham Nightstop, which provides emergency accommodation for 16-25 year olds facing homelessness in the homes of trained volunteer hosts.

We are currently developing a Supported Lodgings project, where young people will be able to move on from the emergency accommodation offered through Nottingham Nightstop to stay with a host family for a longer period of time.

Our intention is to achieve the following:

– Preventing rough sleeping and inappropriate accommodation by providing safe & welcoming emergency accommodation in the homes of approved volunteer host families

– Providing longer term accommodation for young people within welcoming, stable families or peer communities, to help them learn how to take responsibility for their tenancy and to build healthy relationships

– Providing affordable, supportive accommodation so that young people who have experienced homelessness can remain in the same stable accommodation whether they are working or claiming benefits

Charity No: 1110176
