Who are Street Angels?

Street Angels was set up by the city centre churches in 2007, and we welcome volunteers of all faiths and none.

Street Angels operate on Friday and Saturday nights, usually from 8pm to 2am. We patrol in groups of three or four. Our route takes in the West End, Kirkgate and Bradford Interchange.

We can:

  • Give directions
  • Summon help if you are concerned about your health or safety
  • Phone your parents/friends and provide a safe place for you to wait for them
  • Offer tea, coffee and a listening ear
  • If you request it, a member of the team can pray with you

In our first six months, violent crime in the city centre fell by 22%, with a 60% reduction in robberies and an 80% reduction in common assault.
