Whatever Your Situation, We Are Here To Help

If you are 16-24 years old and are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, please get in touch

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.
