Pontypridd Street Pastors
Rhondda Cynon Taff, the local Police and local churches have setup up a Street Pastors Scheme in Pontypridd. Teams of Christians go out on the streets in Pontypridd on a Friday or Saturday night to be a support/help to any people who need it.

- Care, Listen and Help

- Make sure people are safe
- Have a listening ear
- Non Judgemental
- Help vulnerable people
- Clear broken glass and bottles
- Give out Flip Flops preventing injury to feet from glass
- Suppy bottles of water to those who are dehydrated and/or being sick

- Care for those who are hurt or unwell until help arrives
