A little while back we put together a website for Ealing Street Pastors as part of a programme we run aimed at charities, social enterprises and not for profit organisations. Our aim is to have around 50% of the websites (it varies a bit depending on how many projects we have on!) in our portfolio under this programme. To put it simply we offer exactly the same WordPress website development service as our business clients but at no charge.
Ealing Street Pastors are a registered local charity made up of volunteers from local churches. They train each volunteer through the national Street Pastor training programme. Once trained the Ealing Street Pastors patrol in groups of three or more in key centres across the borough of Ealing on Fridays and Saturday nights.
Each patrol is led by an experienced team leader and supported by Prayer Pastors. They patrol from between 10pm to 4am dependant on how busy the streets are. They work with local Police and the local authority to help serve them and to agree the areas which they patrol.
They have a lot of fun and it’s amazing how friendly people are from the general public, to shop keepers, taxi driver and those that might need a helping hand!
Mark is fantastic and really helped one of the charities I volunteer with called Ealing Street Pastors. He build a brilliant website that was exactly what we were after, he was very efficient, met all the deadlines and a pleasure to work with.
