Street Angels are volunteers who believe that people deserve care and love in their time of need. Being non-judgmental underpins everything a Street Angel does. They provide care and support for people who use the leisure and entertainment venues in Guildford, helping them when they become vulnerable at night. This can happen to people for many reasons, including becoming separated from their friends, the effects of homelessness, intoxication, drug abuse, assault or any other issue which has caused personal distress or the potential for physical harm. Street Angels help people whoever they are, regardless of faith or background. They work in teams, in partnership with the club and pub door staff, Police and emergency services, to enable people to get home safely.
