Stories from our SOS Bus

We are always keen to hear how the SOS Bus is making a difference in our community, if you have any stories you would like to share, please email sosbus@opennorwich.org.uk

The following is a sample of just some of the feedback we have received about our SOS Bus:

‘We NEED this SOS Bus.  We need to save lives from people getting too drunk (or and drugs and not knowing where to turn to and losing their lives in the river or worse).  I’m 42 years old and I wish we had something like this when I was in my teens and now my 16 year old daughter is going out and they know they can come to this SOS Bus for help and I’ve now got a grandson and I hope in 15 years time he and his mates can come for help.  The SOS team do a BRILLIANT voluntary job – helping with the police and the ambulance service.  PLEASE, PLEASE KEEP this good work up. WE ALL NEED THIS SERVICE. Cary

The SOS Bus is absolutely fantastic and a life saver.  The staff were pleasant and polite and offered us water to maintain our fluids.  A job well done!! B Moore

Brilliant help when I lost my phone and couldn’t get home.  Thank you sooo much. Becky

I’d just like to say a big thank you to all the staff for helping me, you were so helpful and got me home safely.  My Mum and friends told me you were brilliant and if it wasn’t for the SOS Bus it could have been a more serious incident.  I have never been in such a drunken state before and it taught me a big lesson that I shouldn’t do it again.  I am eternally grateful and I think the work you do is admirable.   Micheala
