About the host organisation

Hosted by: Oldham Street Angels
Organisation Profile: Oldham’s Street Angels objective is to watch over town centre partygoers during the weekend and give a helping hand. Oldham’s Street Angels kindly watch over Oldham’s party goers during the weekends from 11pm till 3am. The scheme is run by Oldham’s town-centre chaplaincy and is backed by Oldham Council and Greater Manchester Police. The aim of the project is to keep people safe and demonstrate genuine pastoral care. Volunteers are not only from the church, there are people of all faiths involved. The Street Angels provide brews for those who need to sober-up, support anyone awaiting transport, collect empty bottles to avoid injury and simply spend time talking to people.
