A YOUTH homelessness charity is appealing for volunteer drivers as demand for its services increases.

Nightstop North East provides emergency accommodation for homeless youngsters.

Hosts across the region work to provide a bed for the night for those left without a roof over their heads.

Organisers are now appealing for volunteer drivers to take the young people to the homes of their hosts.

Project manager Kester Young said: ““We have a network of volunteer hosts but we need more drivers to transport people from A to B.

“Unfortunately, the demand for our service usually tends to increase after Christmas, so we are asking people who have some spare time to think about giving up a couple of hours a week to help those less fortunate than themselves.”

Drivers – who would usually be expected to pick up and drop off in the late afternoon or early evening - must have a clean driving licence and their own vehicle.

All volunteers are vetted and receive out-of-pocket expenses, full training and support.
