  • Emotional Distress
  • Alcohol and Substance misuse
  • Social Isolation
  • Lack of immediate finance
  • Relationship Breakdowns 

Staffing the Bus

A team of 3 to 5 will staff the SOS Bus on Saturday nights between 9:00pm and 3:00am. Each shift will be managed by a Shift Leader overseeing a voluntary team of 3 to 5 trained Shift Volunteers.
