Although the people “on the ground” are all volunteers, such a project has significant costs.
We currently have 16 volunteers regularly patrolling as Street Pastors who were recruited, interviewed carefully, CRB/DBS vetted, professionally trained (requiring 10 sessions over their first year) to work on the streets.
We needed to engage the skills of a Co-ordinator because these sessions must be carefully organised on a rota to cover Saturday evenings. The Street Pastors need to be monitored and supported, and we maintain close liaison with the Police and the Local Authorities. There are many day-to-day organisational and management issues that are necessary to run such a project.
We depend on donations and fundraising to support ourselves. Can you help by changing your search engine or by using the donation link to your favourite retailer? Print these Easysearch Instructions for all the details…….it’s easy!
Could you support us by a donation each month? We are registered as a charity to enable us to reclaim Gift Aid which increases your donation by 25% without you having to do anything other than say you would like us to reclaim the tax you have paid on the amount. Please contact our Web Editor for more information and the necessary forms.
