“The Street Pastors programme in Peterborough delivers something really special for our city. From the very start of the process – working with volunteers who really want to make a difference in their community – through to the practical, often urgent and usually critical assistance and support they provide to people, I continue to be amazed and somewhat in awe at the commitment demonstrated by people prepared to give up their valuable time for the greater good.
I can consistently demonstrate the added value provided through the Street Pastors programme on the community safety, crime prevention and crime reduction work in Peterborough, as well as in associated but less obvious areas including: safeguarding; health and wellbeing; community pride and social cohesion.”
Head of Neighbourhood Services, Peterborough City Council
“Street Pastors is about Christians rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in practically responding to the problems of crime and safety. They are like beacons on our streets and I want to see them shining brightly in every constituency.”
