Community Angels

Connecting the community to services & groups in Scarborough...

Community Angels has grown out of the existing Angels’ work, the Street Angels and the Youth Angels. We are building on that same vision and desire to help the vulnerable and make a positive difference in our town. Community Angels are here to help by providing support and encouragement to people in our local community.

As with all our Angels initiatives we are working in close partnership with the local community, the North Yorkshire Police, Scarborough Borough Council and other local charities and agencies (such as the Rainbow Centre for example).

We are an initiative of the local churches and initially our heart and focus is for the Castle Ward. We are a church led team of volunteers who have all undergone training and are eager to help you.

What we do

  • Ever felt overwhelmed when trying to get help from local support services? We can help by accompanying you and being there with you in meetings as well if you need us to.
  • We can help and support you in a friendly and informal way, one to one.
  • Feeling cut off? Lonely? We can help by introducing you to new friends, asking for a safe local person to give you a call. We can also help connect you to local groups, people and services that you don’t yet know about. Or perhaps you just need a little help to overcome a natural shyness so that you can meet new people.
  • Often there is help already available in the local community, we love to help people make connections.
  • We are here to stay and we will try to help you to have your needs met.
