our patron Bishop of Wakefield Right Reverend Tony Robinson I would like to say a big thank you to those who choose to volunteer with the Christian Nightlife Initiative and for helping to reach and improve the lives of people who find themselves in need of help on the streets of our towns and cities at night time. Volunteers are at the very heart of our organisation. You are the Christian face in the local community. You tell people we’re here for them and time and time again you help make our streets, nightclubs or festivals safer places. Thank you once again for deciding to make a difference.
You are the greatest gift that you bring to your community
Big society award In 2012 the hard work of the volunteers was rewarded by Prime Minister David Cameron with the Big Society award.

CNI stands alongside our amazing teams of volunteers to support the innovative ways that impacts community and changes people for the better. CNI respects that each project requires a flexible approach and therefore tailors support accordingly.
