SOS NI's mission is to work together in partnership on our streets to unconditionally help people in their time of need. Our night-time work is about dealing urgently with vulnerable people at times of crisis. SOS NI is a volunteered centred organisation with a vision to inspire hope and build better futures for everyone.
In just over 13 years SOS Volunteers have interacted with over 363,063 people, provided in-depth caring or medical support to 14,540 individuals who have been damaged emotionally or physically on the streets of Belfast and have helped to save many lives.
The presence of SOS on the streets eases pressure on the PSNI, emergency departments, NIAS and Belfast City Council allowing them to focus their time and effort on more serious and pressing issues. Our highly visible presence also provides reassurance to the community, helping to keep Belfast Safe and make people feel safe.
