ymWe are extremely proud to announce that our historic The-Queens-Award-for-Voluntary-Service-LogoSOS Bus Project has been nominated for Health & Wellbeing Project of the Year 2016 by YMCA England for this years Youth Matters Awards.

This nomination adds to the growing list of prestigious recognition's awarded to our SOS Bus including the Queens Award for Voluntary Service and being featured on Channel 4's Undercover Boss.

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.

At the safe haven are first aiders, youth and voluntary workers with a selection of alcohol, drug and solvent abuse advisers.

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.
