We were asked by one of our customers Black Box Security if we would be willing to get involved, by donating the Zerio Plus wireless fire alarm equipment for this very worthy cause. Due to the tight timescale and the nature of the building, the Zerio Plus system was the ideal choice.

The Charity:
Local Blackburn charity Nightsafe works to alleviate the plight of young people aged 16 – 24 who are
homeless or vulnerably housed. It was established in 1990 to meet the growing needs of homeless young people aged 16 to 24 and was set up by a group of local people.

The current Nightsafe accommodation centre offers immediate access for young people who have nowhere else to go. They can stay for up to 9 nights whilst alternative accommodation is found for them and they are linked into networks and services. The emergency Night shelter is open from 5pm to 10.00 am the next day, but they are now desperate for a new accommodation centre to help Blackburn’s young homeless.

The project is renovating the local church, St Silas, which has kindly agreed to lease its Centre to Nightsafe, to develop accommodation for vulnerable young people of Blackburn and the surrounding area.

BBC Children in Need have been supporting Nightsafe with funding for a number of years to support
homeless and vulnerable young people under the age of 18, by helping to increase their life skills and engaging them in education and employment to encourage stability in their lives.
