Angels on the streets, in the clubs and at the festivals. Street Angels to CNI Network formed 2005
CNI Network was formed to help the Street, Festival and Club Angel volunteers communicate more effectively and to also further this work throughout the UK. This was the plan when it was created in 2008 by Paul Blakey MBE. He had already seen success through the expansion of his first group, Street Angels, which was established in Halifax in 2005. After a 42% reduction in the crime during the night time economy town centre club culture, other towns quickly formed their own groups under Paul’s guidance. So, CNI Network was created as a central point of contact for new groups and to help the existing groups support each other, make friends, share faith, share skills and best practice. Now CNI Network has about 135 projects stretching from the UK, Netherlands, Spain, Australia and Seychelles with other places interested in the scheme. An incredible achievement helping thousands of people every month around the world.
