The History of Nightsafe

Nightsafe has been around for over 30 years now.

Here Is Our Story:

From our humble beginnings in 1990, to where we are now, the Nightsafe Charity continues to provide the young people of Blackburn and Darwen, the help that they need, when they need it.

It has been quite a story so far, but we have so much further to go – all driven by local people and companies that continue to donate their time, resources and money to help us continue on our mission.

Our Ethos

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.

Our Mission

Nightsafe will work 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.

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.
