Street Pastors

Kingston Street Pastors was set up as an Oxygen project almost 10 years ago by Oxygen trustees in partnership with local churches and has helped thousands of adults and young people and those suffering from homelessness, addiction and mental health issues.


How it works

Oxygen have a heart to see young people served and supported in many ways. Young people need support and a listening ear from somone who will not judge or condemn them for the choices they make.

Today's young people need to know that somebody cares and is willing to give up time for them.

Your experiences and willingness to give back may be a lifeline for a young person.



Helping them to work through issues and life's challenges is a vital part of the mentor's role and can be incredibly rewarding for both the young person and the mentor.

Oxygen provides training to all its mentors and ongoing support as you journey alongside a young person.

All mentors undergo an enhanced DBS check and vetting process. Age is not a barrier.

An ability to listen and encourage is essential!

More info
Oxygen's NEET project helps young people aged between 16 and 19 who are confused by the range of choices and options in front of them and need extra support to find their way forward.

Young people often know where their skills lie but can’t see how they could be used to get you a job?

They might know what they want to do but are not sure how to go about taking the first step?



We try to help young people to understand their strengths, qualities and aspirations so that they can make informed decisions about their lives and their future.



“Without Oxygen I would have been stuck in life not knowing what to do. The staff helped me to build my confidence and understand the choices I had to make.

Now I am clearer about my skills and what I want to do in the future. Oxygen helped

me get on the right path and feel more positive about the future.”

Kingston Street Pastors was set up as an Oxygen project almost 10 years ago by Oxygen trustees in partnership with local churches and has helped thousands of adults and young people and those suffering from homelessness, addiction and mental health issues. There are over 60 trained volunteers from local churches who go out on friday and saturday evenings in the town centre, supporting the police and other agencies in ensuring people's safety, picking up bottles that can be used as weapons, giving out flipflops and minimising conflict by giving out lolipops !
