At Nightstop we have always worked with the most vulnerable young people in our community. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit young people especially hard and meant that some who were in relatively positive situations prior to lockdown have been in need of our support.
23 year old Glen had moved into a flat and a promise of employment. However, when lockdown was imposed he lost the offer of employment. With no income, he found himself in a dire situation in an unfurnished flat with no money to buy food.
Nightstop project worker Jo has been supporting Glen and we have provided him with cooking utensils, cutlery and a weekly food donation. Glen had rescued a neglected dog during lockdown which needed urgent veterinary attention.
Dog-lover Jo came to the rescue with advice and supported Glen to get into contact with Street Vets so that the pup, now christened Sassy, was able to have the appropriate care. Glen has now found employment and is now able to support himself and Sassy to have a brighter future.
Glen said, “Nightstop is a fantastic charity, which goes above and beyond anything that I have experienced before.”
