Northallerton Street Angels is a new community initiative led by the New Life Baptist Church in Northallerton in response to a request from North Yorkshire Police.
Thanks to funding from the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire and other sources, New Life Baptist Church has been working with local police, Churches Together Northallerton Area and the Safer Hambleton Community Safety Hub to introduce the new Street Angels scheme in 2016. Street Angels work in groups of three and patrol areas of the town to offer reassurance and help anyone who might need some support on a Saturday night.
Street Angels help support and reassure those in need of help in the Northallerton town area on a Saturday night.
The Northallerton Street Angels can be summarised as:
- Committed Volunteers
- Community Spirit
- Providing a safe place for those in need
- Dedicated patrols at weekends
- Working with the night time economy
- Demonstrating the love of God
- Helping to keep Northallerton safe
Street Angels schemes already work in over 130 towns and cities throughout the UK. For more information, visit www.sa-cni.org.uk.
