WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY
Since launching in Halifax in November 2005, Street Angels has gone on to make a massive impact in towns and cities across the UK. As volunteers hit the streets, with or without wings, thousands are helped and crime rates are reduced. Well done to the amazing team of volunteers in Bedford who commit each Saturday night to making a difference – your practical actions really are helping show God’s Kingdom as a reality for your town – long may it last!
Paul Blakey MBEFounder of CNI Network & Halifax Street Angels – 2009
This is a fantastic initiative and one that will be welcomed wholeheartedly by parents of teenagers from across Bedfordshire. Those of us who know the family of Robert Gill who tragically lost his life on Boxing Day 2007 will know that the danger on the streets is a reality which none of us ever want to see happen again. The Street Angels initiative is bold, sensible, creative and necessary and I wish them every success. I also look forward to helping and giving my own time to support out on the streets.

Message from the Management
Bedford Street Angels is a fantastic organisation, whereby volunteers are able to show the love of Christ in a very practical way to people they encounter on the streets of Bedford late on a Saturday night and into the early hours of Sunday. Having patrolled with Bedford Street Angels since April 2010, I can testify to the many grateful people who have been helped by the Angels, either physically or spiritually. It is by the grace of God that Bedford Street Angels is accepted by the night time economy, being very much appreciated by the groups it works alongside, such as the police, landlords, door supervisors etc. With each volunteer's Christian understanding of life, they can bring hope and joy into sad and desperate situations, showing people that there is a God who loves them whatever their circumstances. It is a privilege and an honour to be a Street Angel, and I give God the glory for all that He has done in the past and will do in the future.Rebecca Bolt – Chair of BSA Management Committee
