HOMELESS charity Redditch Nightstop is celebrating after securing funding until at least 2023.
Nightstop, which has received £235,366 through the National Community Lottery Fund, provides a drop-in service for young people and supports them with emergency accommodation, housing, food and health services.
The cash injection means the charity will be able to continue to help young people, aged 16 to 25.
Project manager Susan Sadler said: “We have been supported by the Lottery Fund since 2016 after launching our bid the year before.
“It’s amazing to know our services will be continuing for at least another four years.”
In 2013 the charity, based on Britten Street, was struggling financially and almost on the verge of closing.
“It’s great to see things have picked up since then,” added Susan, “Tudor Trust have also helped us a lot with funding.”
