My name is Jan Larkin and I am the Chief Executive of Nightsafe.
The support from our community over the last 31 years has always brought a glow to my heart. This year, as a way of thanking you for your kindness I want to share more details with you about who we are, what we do and how important your support is. As we move through the year we will share our news via newsletters, posted on our website.
As in previous years Nightsafe has continued to support young people move on in their lives in all manner of ways and I would like to thank all our staff and volunteers for their hard work. Together we faced a number of challenges and it’s true to say it was a year like no other.
During the last 12 months I am extremely proud to say that we have kept all our Housing Projects open and were able to reopen our Day Centre and Emergency Night Shelter as soon as we could. The continued support of partnerships across the Borough has been critical to this success.
Finally, together we will continue to respond creatively and imaginatively and will work hard with others to be relevant, inclusive and responsive.
I am looking forward to sharing information, plans and requests for support with you as we go through the year.
Without the help of our supporters, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.
Nightsafe needs your help – and we need it NOW!
