In a typical year, Peterborough Street Pastors speak to or help over 1300 people whilst on patrol. This includes helping people to safety and referrals to other agencies.

In 2017 they patrolled for 26 nights, 360 hours, and gave out:

  • 52 pairs of flip flops;
  • 108 bottles of water;
  • 300 lollipops;
  • 26 space blankets.

They also picked up 350 bottles or glasses from the streets.

Peterborough Street Pastors Scheme is run by a Management Committee with an adopted constitution.  The scheme is inter-denominational and welcomes members from all of the Christian churches.  Our constitution requires that we have representatives from three different congregations in the city which must come from at least two denominations.
