Camberley Street Angels

Celebration event for Camberley Street Angels


On the 10th of September 2023 we held the final celebration event for Camberley Street Angels as they mark the end of the project after 13 years of service .

The evening included stories and memories from volunteers from across the 14 years the team has operated. Messages of support were shared from police, Councillors, our local MP Michael Gove and parliamentary candidate Alasdair Pinkerton. One speaker spoke how he looked upon Street Angels as manure: helping the community and people grow; spreading widely; impacting and changing the culture. Paul Blakey MBE, representing ROC Angels thanked the volunteers and said the stories and memories have shown they have made history in Camberley through the dedication, passion, investment and by loving the person in front of them.
112 volunteers over fourteen years have dedicated their time and Faith to our community for which we thank them all – the legacy of lives changed and community impact will last for generations to come.
We have loved serving you, our community, and your messages of heartfelt support have always been warmly and humbly welcomed. God bless you all.

What is a Street Angel?

Street Angels are volunteers who believe that people deserve care and love in their time of need.  Those needs could be as a result of homelessness, intoxication, drug abuse, assault or any other issue which has caused personal distress or the potential for physical harm.

They help people whoever they are and whatever their situation, for example by listening, caring, offering practical help or by referring people to other (specialist) agencies who can help them.

Street Angels operate under the management of Churches Together in Camberley with volunteers, who are over 18, DBS checked, interviewed and trained.

How We Work

The Camberley Street Angels programme operates with support from Surrey Police and the Safer Surrey Heath Partnership.  Initially Camberley Street Angels is operating on Friday & Saturday nights from 10:30pm until around 3am when all the bars and clubs have closed.

What Difference Does it Make?

Street Angels (and similar programmes such as Street Pastors) have been springing up across the UK over the last several years.  They make a really positive impact on crime and antisocial behaviour in town centres (particularly in the vicinity of bars and clubs) by providing a calming presence on the streets late at night.
