The Basildon SOS Bus is located at Festival Leisure Park every Friday and Saturday night from 9pm until 3am, helping vulnerable people at the site well into the early hours.
It acts as the first point of contact for those whose well-being is threatened by an inability to get home, illness or injury, emotional distress or vulnerability
The bus offers support to individuals at Festival Leisure Park, helping the overall night time economy and reducing crime and anti-social behaviour caused by alcohol misuse, therefore reducing the number of alcohol related arrests or admissions to hospital.
Do you have what it takes to volunteer on the SOS Bus?
The SOS Bus relies on volunteers in order to keep running. There are a number of roles available whilst working a shift on the SOS Bus such as team leader, support worker or driver for bus and support vehicle. No experience is necessary as full training will be given, but the ability to cope with unsociable hours, work in a team and be flexible is required.
Volunteers will only be expected to complete one shift per month on the bus.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer on the SOS Bus, contact John Bastin on 07530265892 .
