Woking Street Angels Needed

We are looking for passionate and committed individuals to join our friendly team of volunteers helping those who are vulnerable on the streets of Woking. You will be fully trained and supported. There is a required commitment of one evening a month.

What You'll Do: 

We patrol on Friday and Saturday nights, from 10pm till around 4am in mixed groups wearing our distinctive blue and yellow jackets. Our purpose is to help anyone who needs it and particularly those that find themselves vulnerable or in need.

The work can be varied from the serious to the mundane. A typical night might involve:

Sweeping up and disposing of broken bottles, glasses or cans that have been abandoned.

Helping people to get home safely.

Reuniting lost friends and giving directions.

Tending those who have drunk or taken drugs to excess.

Contacting the emergency services when necessary to resolve problems.

Referring people to other support services to meet their long term needs.

Giving out warm clothing, socks, gloves, scarves, hats and blankets.

Looking out for anyone who might be in danger of physical harm.

Why You'll Love It: 

"To be in the right place, at the right time to help someone; is an honour and a privilege" - Simon Snow - current Woking Street Angel

 

 

What We're Looking For: 

Who can be a Street Angel?

Anyone who shares our desire to support our town and make it a safer place at night. Our core values are:

​- selflessness and non-judgemental

-  honesty and  integrity

- professionalism and excellence

- collaboration and partnership

How old must I be?

Street Angels Woking welcomes volunteers of all ages, from 18 upwards, with no maximum age!
