Since 2013, we have worked with a broad range of organisations to share information and skills. Here is a snapshot of this work:
Fabric were the first Good Night Out Signatory and we helped them to develop the first ever bespoke harassment policy of a UK Nightclub.
From 2014-15, Good Night Out worked in consultation with Southwark Council to design and develop this landmark charter, and trained over fifty local venues from LGBT clubs to local pubs, providing the same approach to harassment on nights out, starting the conversation within staff teams and offering advice and support around previous incidents.
This is our training video produced by Tara Mahandar, written by and featuring Bryony:
We work with NUS to offer Good Night Out Campaign training as a registered provider to Student’s Unions, offering advice and support to Student support services around this issue. See here for our current SU signatories.
We provided consultation and support to national alcohol awareness charity Drinkaware around their Drunken Nights Out report, and subsequently supported the development of their multi-stage pilot of a ‘Club Hosts’ initiative which is now being evaluated. Designed to fund and recruit specialist hosts who would have specific responsibilities around preventing harassment within venues, we wrote the train the trainer briefings and worked in addition to training venue workers in Mansfield and Nottingham.
Kingston Upon Thames
In 2015-16 we worked with large local Kingston nightclubs and bars on a targeted intervention supported by the Met Police and Safer Kingston Partnership, to address these issues in within the nighttime economy. These include Pryzm, Hippodrome, Kings Tun, The Library, Bacchus and more. We have also provided Train the trainer resource materials for local police licensing officers to independently deliver the same key points to further venues in future.
