The End the Night Right - Soho Angels Project is an initiative which started in December 2018 and its main aim is to support vulnerable people in Soho and the West End Area during the night time economy hours. Teams of volunteers go out and provide assistance to those who need it. Help with directions, give water, flip-flops, charge peoples’ phones, help them report a crime, safeguard and also assist with anyone who needs emotional or medical support to ensure everyone ends the night right.
In order to execute those objectives, the angels carry a service bag which contains everything that they may need. A torch, flip-flops, water bottles, breathing mask, rain ponchos, foil blankets, gloves, vomit bags, medical scissors, tissues, wet wipes, power banks and many more.
The teams use radios and a channel which is shared by the Soho police and most of the Soho venues.
The teams also use smart phones to help service users book cabs and use social media to help find friends and family members of those who have been victims of theft or any other form of offence.
We also have a safe space in Soho at Dean Street where we take service users to help them sober up, re-engage with friends and family members, plan their journey and receive reassurance.
We have St John Ambulance in the Hub with us every night and who are there to assist with anyone requiring medical assistance.
