  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to train volunteers drawn from Christian churches of different denominations to provide a listening ear and practical help to the socially marginalised and the needy. We typically patrol the streets of Yeovil Town Centre on Friday and Saturday nights and work in partnership with the police, local councils and a range of voluntary and statutory organisations in order to reach and help all those in need. The gospel is the reason for what we do but is not at the forefront of what we say. We are non-judgemental and will give time and help to anyone and everyone we meet.
