The project trains over 60 volunteers to patrol the city centre between 10pm-3am on Friday and Saturday nights to provide practical, non-judgemental help for those using the night-time economy and to support emergency services during this peak in demand. On an average weekend between 30,000-40,000 people visit, use and enjoy Nottingham’s nightlife.
Each Street Pastor volunteers once a month and patrols in groups of three or more. All of our volunteers are fully trained to assist intoxicated individuals, provide first aid, de-escalate violent incidents and signpost to support agencies for further help. They also give out items such as bottles of water to reduce intoxication and flip-flops to prevent cut feet.
