A different kind of bus can be seen in Halifax Town Centre on Saturday nights throughout December offering shelter and support to party-goers and revellers who may be feeling the effects of an evening drinking.
Donated by BusOasis via the Calderdale Methodist Circuit, the vehicle is stocked with bottled water, flip flops and spikeys; Parked up on George Street, the bus is also kitted out with mobile phone charging points and hot drink facilities.
Volunteers offer advice, guidance and support to users, and can help them to get home safely by referring them to licensed taxi’s home, or by making sure they are safely inside one of the nightclubs or bars, and not left wandering around vulnerable in the town centre.
BusOasis Lead Worker Sharon Lawrance said;
“Busoasis has worked successfully with police in Halifax town centre over the last 18 months tackling ASB in and around the bus station area. We are very much looking forward to extending that work with them and the Street Angels to provide a safe refuge for party goers leading up to Christmas.”
The bus will be parked up in George Street between 8pm and midnight again this Saturday 19 December… read the full story here…

Since 2005 Volunteers of Halifax Street Angels have gone out onto the street on Friday and Saturday evenings to help, care and support anyone who may have become vulnerable and in need and a large part of this care has been first aid.
Street Angels First Aid is a project by Halifax Street Angels which aims to provide low cost but high quality first aid training to businesses, charities and organisations locally and nationally.
There are 3 training sessions on offer which are:
- 1 day emergency first aid – All the basics you need to know to be a confident and competent first aider – £25 per person
- 3 day first aid at work – Takes a much more in depth look at first aid, beyond the basics – £75 per person
- First aid for a safer night out – Aimed at young people between the age of 16 to 24, these sessions aim to educate young people about personal safety.
