What level of fitness do I need?

Reasonable fitness, the shift can involve a lot of walking, standing and maybe knelling down

What training will I get?

All volunteers receive training in First Aid, Conflict Management and Drug Awareness. The First Aid has been specially designed to meet the needs of Street Angels and take place over one full day. The other training is done during the evening and the 3 sessions take 2.5 to 3 hours each. Refresher courses are held either every six months or annually. 

    

       

What clothing should I wear / bring?

Warm waterproof clothing and flat comfortable foot wear. In the winter thermals might be a good idea as you will be standing around in the cold a long time. Bring a mobile phone. All Street Angels wear a High Viz jacket while out.
