Worried on a night out? Ask for Angela

With the festive season here, we’d like to remind you of the Ask for Angela scheme, which helps to keep people safe on a night out and protects anyone who is feeling vulnerable or unsafe while on a date or with someone they have met.

Anyone who feels unsafe in such a situation can get help from bar staff by simply asking to speak to “Angela”. Staff will then assist the person in leaving the venue discreetly and getting home or to a place of safety. This could mean taking the person out of sight, calling for a taxi and making sure they get home okay, or even asking the person causing distress to leave the venue if appropriate.

Do you work in a venue that might want to participate? You can find posters and more information at our Ask for Angela webpage.
