Our Angels need loving homes – they need you! It’s not just SOS or our volunteers who are SOS Angels, it’s you too! Show your caring side, your understanding, kindness and help us drive this year’s theme of #compassioninsociety by wearing your Angel and let others know you are there for them.

Vicky Nash, SOS Angel & Ambassador
For vulnerable or lonely people who use our support services, our amazing volunteers really are the Angel that everyone needs at some point in their life. Covid, lockdown and the impacts of these, are leaving people feeling confused and anxious, so what better time to purchase your Angel and encourage others to do the same by supporting us and helping us to continue helping others.
SOS Angels are for every day, week, month and year. Because supporting the vulnerable and lonely, helping them through the tough times, just like our team of volunteer angels at SOS, means extending compassion continuously.
Here’s what Andy Latham of Next Plc thinks of our Angels: ‘Next will be supporting SOS Angels and their message of kindness, understanding and compassion by selling these badges in a small selection of stores and giving all proceeds back to the charity.’
We are the proud official charity partners of World Seniors Snooker. Here’s what Jason Francis, WSS, who thought of the Angel concept had to say about the Angels:
“For me I was looking for a global symbol our snooker players could wear on TV which would have a meaning. An angel on your shoulder means you are not alone; someone is watching out for you. I really look forward to all our snooker players wearing them with pride. You don’t need wings to be an SOS Angel, you just need to be there. ‘Hear to Listen’ is how I like to sum it up, and at World Senior Snooker we are definitely listening.”
Founders of SOS, Michael and Yvette Mansfield say: “Our message is Buy It, Wear It, Share It! We want our SOS Angels pin badges to start the conversation and education – positive interaction which may help save someone’s life. SOS, for many, is their guardian angel. But we’d like a whole nation of SOS Angels, all helping others get through their darkest times.”
There are many partners, individuals and organisations who’ve made SOS Angels come to life. Without their help, support and generosity, our Angels would have remained a concept, not a reality.
