About Us

Our role is to listen, to care and to provide practical help and support to anyone and everyone in Chester’s night-time economy. We do this in many ways:

  • Giving out free flip-flops to ladies with bare feet
  • Giving water to those who need it
  • Keeping people warm with emergency survival blankets
  • Offering reassurance and comfort to people in distress
  • Helping vulnerable people contact friends and get home safely
  • Sweeping glass and remove bottles to keep the streets safer
  • All sorts of other things as the need arises!

aboutNationally Street Pastors are in nearly 300 different locations, with nearly 11,000 trained Street Pastors. Cheshire West Street Pastors are the local expression of this national team. Street Pastors were first pioneered in London in 2003 and continues to grow throughout the UK and across the world.

Street Pastors are well trained volunteers, from local Christian churches, who care about their local communities.

The initiative is led by the local coordinator who works on behalf of the charity’s trustees, who act as the management team. We are funded by individuals and churches, the local council and business community and through various funding applications. The local council and police are supportive of what we do and we work collaboratively with them and all the other voluntary and statutory agencies within the Borough of Cheshire West and Chester.
