About us

About Cheltenham Guardians. Who we are and what we do.

Cheltenham Guardians is the collective name of a team of emergency welfare officers working in a voluntary capacity in Cheltenham's award winning Purple Flag night time economy. Working in partnership and alongside Gloucestershire Constabulary, Cheltenham Borough Council and Cheltenham Safe we provide emergency safeguarding and welfare services to patrons, visitors to the town and residents.

Founded in late 2014 by philanthropist Terry Howard the organisation became a partner in the care response to the night time economy in January 2016 and has enjoyed huge success.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all night time economy duties have been suspended until further notice. Since suspension the organisation has been working as part of the community response to COVID-19.

We very much appreciate the support we receive from the community we proudly serve. This support remains extensive and unswerving. When this support manifests itself into awards and acknowledgements it is a great boost for the team.
