    SOS Bus 10th Anniversary!

    The pioneering SOS Bus project has been in existence for 10 years providing help and support in the centre of Norwich every week.


    The Evening News are running a series of articles in conjunction with the anniversary. Comments below:

    'With the SOS Bus there's almost nothing left to say - it's been praised so much over the years. It's done a huge amount of good in the city and has been a life saver for many people and has become a flagship which others have copied. It's all praise to everyone who had anything to do with it - those involved in setting it up and those that keep it going, particularly the volunteers'
    Julian Foster, Chairman of the Central Norwich Citizens' Forum

    'It's a pioneering pilot project of genius which has been put into other cities and towns in the country. We're very, very lucky to have the support of the volunteers that we do to have it on a weekly basis - we're very spoilt and lucky and long may it stay'
    Toby Middleton, operations manager of Mercy nightclub

    'The SOS Bus has helped keep people safe and has stopped a lot of problems from escalating which could have been a lot worse. It's not simply about people who have been overdoing it in clubland - there are a lot of people with other problems that the bus has managed to help. It's a brilliant service and I hope it continues for a long time yet.'
    Steve Morphew, leader of Norwich City Council

    'The SOS Bus is a fantastic and innovative project which owes a great deal to the work and commitment of a number of people and organisations. My role was simply one of encouragement but I feel that the whole project has stamped its message both on Norwich and more widely'
    Charles Clarke, former Norwich South MP

    'Having helped almost 6,500 people since it was first set up in 2001 the project has more than proved its worth and the Evening News will, as it has done over the past decade, continue to champion the bus which has been one of the biggest success stories in Norwich in the past 10 years'
    Tim Williams, Evening News editor

    SOS Bus team member visits Downing Street A member of the SOS Bus team was given the opportunity to visit 10 Downing Street as part of Company magazines ‘Get Home Safely Campaign’. Lynsey Eagle talked to David Cameron and the Home Secretary Theresa May about the role the SOS Bus plays in helping women get home safely and said that, ‘Both the prime minister and the home secretary felt that the SOS Bus was a positive and valuable project’ (see article in press section).
