Information, support and a safe space for those who need help while out at night

Soho Angels

Soho Angels and the Night Hub

Anyone can need help while out at night - whether they're lost, had too much to drink, or found themselves alone or afraid.

The Soho Angels are a team of volunteers helping people who become vulnerable after a night out. Whether you need water, a person to talk to, or a safe place to sober up – they’re there to help you end the night right and get home safely.

The Angels work in partnership with St John Ambulance volunteers to provide medical help at our Night Hub. Alongside keeping people safe, they’re helping prevent trips to A&E and reduce crime.

The Soho Angels are there to make London’s nightlife safer for everyone. They also reflect Soho’s roots as a significant place for the LGBT community, and work to ensure nightlife remains a safe, inclusive and understanding space.

We need your help. Can you spare one Friday or Saturday night a month to be a Soho Angel? Volunteers provide a diverse range of practical and emotional support – from handing out bottles of water or helping people find safe transport home, to helping people report crime or providing emotional support to people who are vulnerable or distressed.

Volunteering is a great way to make new friends and support the community. It can also help enhance your CV, building communication and team work skills, as well as experience that could help toward a career in psychology, social work, medicine or emergency services.

Volunteers are supported every step of the way and work closely with police, ambulance, and council staff. You’ll get training from Drinkaware, St John Ambulance, and LGBT Foundation, including caring for those who are intoxicated, conflict resolution, safeguarding and supporting vulnerable people, and LGBT awareness and support.
