Welcome to the Award Winning Halifax Street Angels
Welcome to our website for Halifax Street Angels, Angels Rest Café and Street Angels First Aid. Here you will find all the information you need to learn about our charity, how to volunteer, where to get low cost first aid training or what we offer in our café and Christian book shop.
Since the creation of Halifax Street Angels in 2005 we have gone from strength to strength. Our work of supporting people within the Halifax Town Centre night time economy is what we are and what our volunteers do best, but in order to fund and support this we now have the Angels Rest Café and Christian Bookshop (which can be found on Crossley Street) and we offer high quality but low cost first aid training to businesses, charities and churches locally and nationally through Street Angels First Aid.
