supporting projects supporting people
CNI (Christian Nightlife Initiatives) Network is supporting, resourcing and celebrating around 130 local projects at work within the night-time economy. Winners of the Big Society Award our vision is to see communities empowered and equipped to see transformation from binge to better. Our projects have featured on BBC 1's Songs of Praise and Street Patrol alongside a wide range of regional and national media.
Our local projects include: Street Angels, Club Angels, NightLight, Festival Angels, Town Pastors, Street Chaplains, safe place drop-in's, mobile support units, lap-dancing bar chaplains and Youth Angels.
CNI Network and our local projects have: seen violent crime, Anti-Social Behaviour and sexual assaults reduced; contributed to a change in the 'Booze Britain' culture; invested millions of volunteer hours into communities; helped hundreds of thousands of people across the UK and Europe; become an award-winning model for church and community involvement in night-time economy issues; become a voice on alcohol & night-time related issues; and equipped and resourced local areas into action!
CNI Network is a grass-roots movement supporting projects supporting people in the UK, Spain, Australia and Brasil.
