We are volunteers from the Inverness area who care about you. Each one of us:
- is a Christian and is part of a local church;
- is concerned for society and our local community;
- is here for everyone, whatever your perspective on life and wherever you hang out;
- is part of a team working in collaboration with other agencies and projects, both statutory and voluntary.
We conduct ourselves professionally and with confidentiality. We have all completed an extensive training course and we are all members of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme in Scotland which means that we are police-checked for working with young and/or vulnerable people.
We patrol in teams of men and women in the city centre, Merkinch / South Kessock and Hilton areas. We are ordinary people: the young and the old, students, mums and dads, grannies and grandpas. We are here to listen, to care, and to help. We are happy to answer questions about faith and to offer prayer but we will never push that as an agenda. The word “Pastor” means “to look out for”, “to protect” and “to nurture” and that is who we are. Whether we are ensuring you are safe in the city’s nightlife or having a confidential chat in one of our housing schemes: we are here for you.
