Our Vision

Is that every young person that comes through Nightsafe’s door will have a roof over their head, live in a safe environment, be treated with kindness, dignity and respect and achieve their potential.

Who are Nightsafe?

Nightsafe are a local Charity set up in 1990 by a group of local people, with the aim of alleviating the plight of homeless and vulnerably housed young people within the borough of Blackburn with Darwen and surrounding areas.

The Nightsafe charity works with young people who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness and will provide accommodation, day centres with information, advice and guidance.

We will help with emergency needs and empower our young people to play a positive part in their local community.
