Street Angels are front page news!

We’ve had a  great write up in the Belper News this week on the Street Angels project as it prepares for its public launch next Friday evening (22 June) at St John’s Chapel, Belper.

The angels have already carried out a couple of Friday night patrols but next Friday’s event sees the official launch of the project after months of planning.

The event will start at 7pm at the chapel with a short commissioning service for the volunteers, followed by a reception and an opportunity for photographs.

All those involved in the project will be attending together with some of the local partner organisations and members of Belper Town Council.  The service will be led by Paul Blakey MBE who founded the Street Angels project natrionally.

The project has really come together over the past few weeks with all the volunteers undergoing training in safeguarding, first aid and youth culture awareness among other things.

The initial target of 16 volunteers has been reached, meaning that patrols of three to four people are viable each Friday of the month with people volunteering one Friday a month.

Outings so far have seen Street Angels walking the lanes of the Whitemoor estate and the Parks estate chatting to young people who are encouraged by our presence.

Project co-ordinator Rachel Marszalek said:  “Our aim is to make our community a happy place, joining in with the good work that is already happening that impacts life here.”
