Loughborough Street Pastors work on the streets, as a visible, recognizable and trusted presence. Not preaching or condemning, but listening, caring and helping people from the community. Every Street Pastor is a committed Christian and the training programme ensures that they are fully equipped to handle even the most difficult situations.
The work is done in partnership with the local police and Charnwood Borough Council. They are part of a national team first pioneered in 2003 and in Loughborough that began in 2008 as a Hope08 initiative set up by Loughborough Churches Partnership.
Each year, Loughborough Street Pastors has its AGM and awards evening to celebrate the great work carried out by its volunteers over the year, forge stronger relationships with the partner organisations and agencies, and to look ahead at the direction the group is going in. A short annual report is produced highlighting statistics of the work carried out over the year and we worked with Jan Sutton, who heads up the group, to help communicate these statistics in a compelling visual way.
