Due to Coronavirus we have temporarily postponed our patrols and the hub to ensure we remain compliant with government restrictions. We continue to work closely with our partner organisations to support other local initiatives and to plan our return when it is safe for us to do so, both for our volunteers and those we help.
We hope to return to limited patrols over the Summer and will share more details of what this will look like and the changes to expect on our social media pages and we truly hope to return to our full hub and patrol as soon as the pandemic is over.
In the meantime you can still register your interest to be a Street Angel on the join us page – we hope you and your families remain safe throughout this period and hope to see you all very soon.
Windsor Street Angels is a voluntary organisation operating in Windsor town centre since February 2012. We patrol the streets every Friday and Saturday night helping anyone who may be vulnerable or need of our support and help and have helped over 30,000 people since our first shift. This support might be to provide water, flip flops, lollipops or blankets, soup for the homeless or just a listening ear. There are some occasions when volunteers will need to assist with basic first aid or in more extreme circumstances call an ambulance or police.
Street Angels is about members of the local community working with partners to ensure that people in the night time community have a safe and pleasant experience and those in need receive help.
We work closely with the police and ambulance services along with licensed premises. In a typical year we help over 4000 people, distribute 1000 pairs of flip flops, 600 bottles of water, make 47 referrals to other agencies and calm 73 situations.
Street Angels operates under the umbrella of Windsor Christian Action (WCA). Windsor Christian Action is a local charity operating social projects in Windsor. Visit their website for more details.
We are supported by several local organisations including the Michael Shanly Foundation, Radian Housing, The Edith Murphy Foundation, Prince Philip Trust, Windsor and Maidenhead Christian Trust, Windsor Baptist Church, RBWM and Thames Valley Police.
