    Street Angels

    Street Angels are volunteers who believe that people deserve care and love in their time of need.  Those needs could be as a result of homelessness, intoxication, drug abuse, assault or any other issue which has caused personal distress or the potential for physical harm.  They help people whoever they are and whatever their situation, for example by listening, caring, offering practical help or by referring people to other (specialist) agencies who can help them.  Street Angels operate under the management of the Town Centre Chaplaincy with volunteers representing people of different faiths and none.  Volunteers are over 18, DBS checked, interviewed and trained.

    What difference does it make?

    Street Angels (and similar programmes such as Street Pastors)  make a really positive impact on crime and antisocial behaviour in town centres (particularly in the vicinity of bars and clubs) by providing a calming presence late at night.

    Our Coordinator

    Our Street Angels Coordinator, Fiona Ford, is responsible for the recruitment (and checking), training, deployment and support for volunteer Street Angels.

     

    Prayer And Reflection

    “So let us learn how to serve, And in our lives enthrone Him; Each other's needs to prefer, For it is Christ we're serving.”
