Our charity is dedicated to offering support and advice for people affected by pain and we do this by providing a free of charge service which includes a walk-in centre and reference library with up to date information and impartial, friendly first hand advice and support from our volunteers many of whom do themselves suffer with or have been affected by chronic pain and can provide helpful advice based on their own experience of living with and managing chronic pain.

It is clinically evident that a person is better able to self-manage it they have a good understanding of the nature of their pain.

Family Support Services

NEW FOREST NIGHTSTOP

New Forest Nightstop provides the emergency overnight accommodation for homeless people aged 16+ in the homes of trained and approved host households around the New Forest. New Forest Nightstop was established in 2003 and is a team approach to homelessness. It is a voluntary service managed by Community First New Forest based at Ringwood and is affiliated to the national registered charity, Nightstop UK.

The primary aim of Nightstop is to enable homeless people to access safe, free, emergency accommodation in our host households at the beginning of their homelessness when their need is most acute, then to support them towards a more secure future. The support given by Nightstop improves not only homeless people’s self-esteem but also their life chances, and their outcomes for employment, training, health and housing are much improved.

   Community hosting by volunteers in their own homes for people in need of short term (1 - 3 nights) due to homelessness
