About GTCC

We have two main aims:

To enhance understanding, trust and cooperation between communities of work, faith, leisure and society

To rovide a caring, listening and supportive presence for anyone who lives in, works in or visits the town centre.

We run 3 distinct volunteer projects within Guildford:

Street Angels patrol Guildford town centre late on Friday and Saturday nights, bringing a calming presence and offering practical care and support for anyone in their time of need.

Community Angels befriend vulnerable adults who may face loneliness and isolation. They volunteer an hour a week for a 6 month period.

Volunteer Chaplains regularly visit a specific setting/work place in the town and are motivated by their faith to give time and to listen. They provide spiritual and emotional support in a confidential, safe place, to others of any faith or none.

Queen’s Award

FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICES

On Sunday 18th of October 2015 at 6.oopm, the Church of St Nicolas in Guildford was filled with past and present Street Angels and Voluntary Chaplains to witness the presentation of the HM Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee Award for Voluntary Service.

Rod Boreham, our former Guildford Town Centre Chaplain led a very inspiring service during which HM Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Mr Michael More-Molyneux presented the Award to Fiona Ford, Guildford Street Angels’ co-ordinator.

“I was hugely impressed with the compassionate open-minded support they offer people in times of vulnerability. My night as an observer on a shift confirmed my view that the Street Angels offer a calm and caring support network”

CLAIR - PARENT & NOW STREET ANGEL

“Town centres patrolled by Street Angels see marked reductions in violent crime, sexual assaults and antisocial behaviour.”
