Ok so I may not be religious BUT the late night listeners definitely deserve a huge appreciation for what they do, no matter who u r or what u believe in they will always listen/be there and offer a cuppa. I think that they're actually pretty incredible people to do what they do, even if they might listen to one person that person they could be making a difference to that persons life. So if anyone I know who reads this and knows someone who stands outside till stupid o'clock in the morning offering a ear/smile/friendly face/cuppa what you do makes a difference to this world and if only there was more less judgemental people like you life would be so much easier
CNI Network is inviting people to join us in praying for our work as part of the Annual Day of Prayer on 28th February. The day sees local projects joining together in various regions to pray for our communities at night, the work of local projects, those we help, those who work within the night-time economy and for CNI Network in its work of supporting and resourcing local work. 

We are joining with Neighbourhood Prayer Network in their vision to see every street in the UK prayed for. We are asking local projects to sign up to say what streets they patrol and pray for - see this page for more information.
As the streets of our nation become safer and quieter we are suggesting new ways our projects can impact communities. Our local projects are known for creatively finding fresh ways to offer help and assistance and have birthed initiatives such as Club Angels, Festival Angels Youth Angels and Community Angels. A new area we are developing is a listening service within A&E waiting rooms for those who visit A&E due to loneliness or just need for space to sober up and not the need for medical attention. We are also supporting local projects to run Festival Angels at music festivals and major sporting events. CNI Network continues to be a grass-roots movement that is helping change the culture of a nation. 
CNI Network is in need of financial support to cover our core costs. We do not make a charge to our local projects and as such struggle to raise the funds needed to cover the costs of our two staff and various expenses. The trustees met this week and are looking for support to cover CNI's core costs of £6.00 a week per project. CNI Network currently has £2000 available which will cover the costs for March. CNI Network can offer savings on insurance cover, commission on sales of the paperback book, Dudes With Wings, etc. Individual, business, church support is also welcomed! To support us our bank details are:

Great email from Tony Hogg, Police and Crime Commissioner in Devon and Cornwall:

"Thank you very much for providing a copy of the book. I am very supportive of the work you do in helping to keep people safe in the night time economy, and the help which you provide to the police. The commitment of the Teignmouth and Dawlish Nightshift is making a significant contribution to the safety of people in the local area. Helping to change the culture of alcohol related violence is one of my key priorities and members of my staff are supporting a number of initiatives to this end. One of these, the introduction of breathalyser kits into licensed premise in Torbay, is showing early signs of success in helping to reduce the number of violent incidents. Through the work of your own organisation and the support of other groups such as the street pastors I am sure that we can make a real difference."

Read about our amazing story in the book, "Street Angels - the amazing story from binge to better". 

Written and compiled by founder of Halifax Street Angels and CNI Network, Paul Blakey MBE, the book tells the amazing history of projects across the UK and Europe that are working in local communities and making the difference. 

You will read stories of changed lives and changed communities from Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England and Spain.

The book is available as a paperback, at a wide range of stockists, as an eBook and on Amazon

Earlier this week co-ordinators of work at Leeds Festival, Montrose Fest, Edinburgh Festival and V Staffordshire met to share ideas, resources and pray as part of Festival Network.

Your people will rebuild the cities that were destroyed long ago.
And you will build again on the old foundations.
You will be called the one who repairs broken walls.
You will be called the one who makes city streets like new again.
