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. 

Operating since 2007, SOS NI Volunteers have interacted with 362,969 people, providing tea, coffee, soup and a listening ear. We have supported over 14,368 clients with in depth medical and welfare support. The 60-ft SOS Buses are a landmark in the City providing Safe Spaces for anyone in their time of need.

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.
