The Street Angel teams operate every Friday & Saturday night, all year round, starting at 10.30 pm, until around 4 am; each Street Angel commits to volunteer for 1 night every 4 weeks. Volunteers are over 18, are DBS checked, interviewed and receive specialist training to prepare them for the role.
Street Angels have been serving people on Guildford’s streets since October 2008 and make a positive impact on crime and antisocial behaviour by providing a calming presence late at night. Over the years GTCC has nurtured and developed great working relationships with the local organisations and venues which results in effective collaboration when our volunteers are out.
They also support other events & establishments, e.g. Fresher’s week, Alcohol Awareness events, the Guildford Retirement Fayre, the University Open days, helping to make Guildford a more welcoming place for prospective students, and reassuring the students of our presence in the town.
