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.

Hi, on Friday evening a few friends and myself went out in windsor, whilst we weren't stupidly drunk we did have a few too many, some lovely street angels gave us water, flip flops and a lolly. Thank you so much for doing what you do being a young girl out at night could have some serious problems. You made us feel safe and stayed and spoke to us until we gathered our bearings and headed home. Thank you so much

‘The Street Angels have proven to be a massive support not only to the council and their partners but more importantly to the vulnerable people they engage with during their Night Time Economy patrols at weekends. The Royal Borough are so lucky to have committed volunteers that give up their own time to offer support to those that need it most. We shall continue to support the angels and would like to thank each and every one of them for the outstanding service they provide to our communities.’
Hey street Angels. Thank you so much for looking after my very drunk boyfriend last night.
