Since 2006 the SOS Bus has provided a safe haven in Southend in the form of a converted double decker bus which is positioned in the town centre high street by McDonald’s and Marks & Spencer between 9pm and 4am Friday and Saturday nights.
|The bus is equipped to enable basic first aid, counseling, and provides people with a safe environment until assistance is arranged, as well as literature on alcohol and drug education/intervention support services.
In 2011 Southend YMCA launched the Basildon SOS Bus, based at Festival Leisure Park near Liquid & Envy Nightclubs.
The team have a radio connecting them to the Town Link Radio System co-ordinated from the Towns CCTV control centre. They also have a mobile phone to contact parents, relatives, friends etc of vulnerable people and or support services.
