Nite Light CIC
Nite Light CIC set up in April 2020 to help the most vulnerable throughout the Tees Valley area. An innovative digital pay forward service was introduced to offer a cashless aid and support people who are homeless have access to basic essentials such as meals, snacks, drinks and hygiene bags. Partnered with cafes and bistros throughout the Tees Valley the service also acts as a channel for members of the public who want to help but don’t know how to; they can support by purchasing a product from the website which is passed across to someone in need.
Nite Light also run free market stalls where those who are facing poverty can have access to free basic essentials from food and clothing to hygiene products and small household items such as kettles and toasters.
The demand is high and there are many facing poverty however our services bring the community together and has re-introduced the once lost community spirit whilst increasing health and wellbeing.
A volunteer led organisation with 42 volunteers where numbers are growing week on week. We need funds to cover costs of uniforms and training for these wonderful people who give their time freely to help those less fortunate.
Nite Light have also identified gaps in services and are working on a project where people will have access to shower, washing machine and dryer facilities so funding will also be used to support this project in terms of paint and flooring for a leased building.
