Nottingham Street Pastors are a group of volunteers working alongside emergency services, providing on-street care and support for night-time visitors to Nottingham’s city centre.

Set up in 2010, Nottingham Street Pastors is a multi-church response to urban night-time problems with the aim to ensure a safer experience and improve Nottingham’s nightlife. With thousands of people visiting the city on an average weekend, over 60 volunteers representing 40 Nottinghamshire churches patrol the streets of Nottingham city centre in teams of three on a Friday and Saturday between the hours of 10pm to 3am, offering practical, non-judgemental and compassionate help to the vulnerable and those in need of assistance.

Street Pastors hand out preventative supplies such as water, lollipops and flip flops and can provide emergency first-aid when someone’s night out takes a turn for the worst, helping relieve pressure from door staff, the Police and other emergency services.
