Street Pastors are a national organisation that started in Brixton in 2003 in response to inner city gun crime.  Since then it has grown so that there are now over 300 Street Pastor Initiatives across the UK the majority of which serve the people of the Night Time Economy in their city or town.

Street Pastors in Derby started in February 2009 and since that date we have provided a continuous presence on the streets of Derby on a Friday and Saturday night. 

We have trained over 130 Street Pastors and we currently have 49 volunteers who make up our team.

Get in touch if you have a query about referring someone for help or becoming a Street Pastor yourself.
