Where your money goes: Depaul Nightstop

Posted on May 16, 2013 by Depaul Box Company

When you buy our boxes you’re not just buying any old boxes, you’re buying boxes that save lives. All of our profits go to Depaul UK, which has been helping young homeless people to get off the street and stay off the street since 1989.

But what does Depaul UK do with your money?

Depaul UK runs many different projects across the UK and over the next few weeks we’re going to be lifting the lid on the valuable work that Depaul UK does every single day.

We’ll start with the Depaul Nightstop programme, which is one of Depaul UK’s biggest programmes, providing safe, secure emergency accommodation for homeless young people in the homes of approved volunteer hosts.

The volunteer hosts not only give up their spare room, but also their time to ensure that young people sleeping on the street are able to take their first step out of homelessness.

Nightstop actively prevents young homeless people from having to sleep rough, and is a critical part of breaking the cycle of youth homelessness for some of the 80,000 young people who experience homelessness every year.

Every year Nightstop provides over 8,000 bednights in 40 locations across the UK, but we’d like to be able to provide a lot more of this kind of support.

Just two packs of boxes is enough to provide an additional bednight, so every box we sell makes a difference...
