What is the Street Angels Project?
Working in partnership with local traders and the Police and Ambulance Services, Street Angels provides a safe place for those who become vulnerable in any way on Friday and Saturday evenings in the Trinity Quarter area of Hull between 9pm and 2am.
What do Street Angel volunteers do?
- Walk the area in hi-vis jackets, ready to care for the vulnerable
- Listen and talk to all who want to spend time with them, building up rapport
- Engage with rough sleepers
- Look after the vulnerable who may have had one drink too many
- Provide information and telephone numbers for assistance, dispense free bottled water, safe footwear and blankets
What sort of people volunteer as Street Angels?
Street Angels come from all walks of life. They are people who:
- Work well as part of a team
- Are willing to undergo training
- Will not be judgmental
- Enjoy working with and helping people
What are the benefits if I decide to volunteer?
Street Angels will:
- Receive training in Radio Communications, First Aid, Alcohol and Drugs Awareness, and Conflict Management
- Have the satisfaction of making a positive contribution to their communities
- Gain valuable experience and the opportunity to demonstrate a range of transferable skills
Anything else I need to know?
We know our services are required in the Trinity Quarter because we work closely with the Council and the emergency services. In order to do this we need more volunteers. If you think you could help or would like more information about Street Angels, please contact us.
