Street Pastors are Christian men and women who engage with people on the streets offering reassurance, safety and support through caring, listening and helping. We work together with other partners in the night-time economy, schools and communities to make our city safer.

Each city project is set up by Ascension Trust, which is the governing body behind Street Pastors, and run locally with support from local churches and community groups, in partnership with the police, local council, schools and other statutory agencies.

Southampton Street Pastors is a charitable company that has been operating since 2009. We are made up of around 165 Christian volunteers drawn from over 60 churches in and around the area.

We operate under license from Ascension Trust and are part of a countrywide (and international) network operating in nearly 300 towns and cities in the UK and abroad. Company number: 7292166. Charity number: 1137759.
