Help for young homeless people
A scheme which provides safe emergency accommodation for young people is extending its services in Lincolnshire.

The Nightstop Scheme, which helps people aged between 16 and 25, is coming to East Lindsey.

People who find themselves with nowhere to stay get emergency accommodation for up to three nights, and help to either go home or find somewhere else to stay.

The scheme relies on volunteers who can offer spare rooms, a listening ear or just time to help.

East Lindsey District Council's John Upsall, said: "We would be looking for volunteer hosts, drivers and telephone operators, but at this stage we are only looking for expressions of interest in each area."

Potential volunteers can find out more at a meeting on 19 June at Skegness Town Hall.
