As well as our Community Family Offer Volunteer role, we are excited to offer a brand new Digital Content Assistant for Children and Families Services volunteer role and applications are now open.

Please note:

  • Our service operates Monday to Friday, 9am - 4.30pm with limited opportunities for early evening and weekend support 
  • As part of Action for Children's Safeguarding Policy we will expect all volunteers to undergo a disclosure check. This will be organised by project staff

We work together to reach our vision of safe and happy childhoods. A diverse workforce enriches the lives of the children and young people we work with and we welcome applications from everyone. We value and celebrate our differences and as an inclusive workplace we want everyone to be themselves.

Nightstop Dorset

Our Vision

Dorset Nightstop provides safe, secure emergency accommodation for young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Young people are welcomed into the home of a fully trained volunteer host. Placements are on a one night at a time basis, usually for a maximum of three nights.

As a young person accessing Nightstop you can expect:

  • a safe and secure bed for the night in your own room
  • an evening meal and breakfast
  • washing facilities
  • a listening ear, if you need one, or head space if you prefer
  • a friendly and free service
  • breathing space to allow you to get any support you need and move towards finding more permanent accommodation

Nightstop aims to keep young people in a safe and friendly home environment, while allowing agencies to look at long-term solutions to their homelessness.
