Street Angels

Street Angels are volunteers who patrol Cleethorpes in small teams on Saturday nights interacting with people on the street.  We are there to be a reassuring presence; to care, to listen, to talk and to offer practical help.  We are there for the vulnerable.

We respond if someone needs help but will also call the appropriate services if needed.  However, we hope to reduce these calls by providing practical help like: picking up discarded bottles, helping people get a taxi home, contacting friends or family, being a listening ear, chatting with people and maybe even providing flip flops to those not wearing shoes.  The main point though is to provide a friendly face in the centre of Cleethorpes, helping to make everyone’s evening as much fun and as safe as it can be.

The Street Angels project is supported by Churches Together in N E Lincolnshire, however, volunteers don’t have to belong to a church, but they do need to want to be part of a team working to improve the safety of people who are using our bars, restaurants and clubs. 
The project is also supported by Safer and Stronger Communities, Humberside Police,  VANEL Volunteer Centre and other local agencies. 
Street Angels are over 18 years old, have provided references and are committed to attending our training programme.  They have agreed to adhere to our policies and procedures. They wear the Street Angels uniform when on duty and are willing to be available for at least one Saturday night per month from 10.00pm until 2.30am.
