About Nightsafe

Nightsafe is a local homeless charity based in Blackburn providing holistic services to homeless young people aged 16 to 24 in the Blackburn and Darwen borough.  Nightsafe has four projects offering a variety of housing options and services to young people.  Since Nightsafe began in 1990 we have:-

The Shelter provides young people aged 16 to 24 a safe place to stay with resettlement support to help them find more permanent accommodation.

Witton Project is a supported housing project for 16 to 18 year olds promoting life skills and supporting young people to move on into indenpendent living.

Platform 5 is a day centre for 16 to 24 years olds that provides facilities such as laundry, storage, showers and meals.   It also has an educational and health promotion brief.
