Our Mission

Good Night Out Campaign is on a mission for safer nightlife. We believe nights out should be about fun and freedom, not fear.

We help nightlife spaces and organisations to better understand, respond to, and prevent sexual harassment and assault, through specialist training, policy support and an accreditation programme. Let’s change the party to change the world.

Our Work

We’re creating safer music, culture and nightlife spaces.

From the pub to the street to the bus to our homes, sexual harassment is everywhere. We build workplace and community capacity to respond to and prevent all gender-based harms, because we know it doesn’t have to be this way.

Good Night Out begin challenging sexual violence in nightlife in 2014, initially as a campaign of Hollaback London. We helped London’s iconic fabric to create the first ever nightclub anti-sexual harassment policy and never looked back. We help licensed spaces to upskill their teams and deliver specialist, interactive workshops to bar staff, managers, and security.

We provide independent advice and messaging to local authorities and charities, and partner with frontline support services around the UK and beyond. We delivered Southwark’s Women’s Safety Charter, and Hackney’s mythbusting #ReframeTheNight campaign, seen on billboards across the borough. We created the #OktoAsk bystander toolkit for Drinkaware and act as specialist consultants for London City Hall’s Night Czar. Read our toolkit here. Good Night Out Campaign CIC is a member of the End Violence Against Women Coalition.

FAQs

Doesn’t having posters up about sexual harassment just make people think it’s not a safe place?

Actually, research demonstrates that safety planning is a normal part of nights out for women and LGBTQ+ people. The feedback we receive suggests that rather than causing fear, our posters which let customers know they will be supported in the event of harassment feel reassuring, not scary. Sexual harassment happens everywhere and is a universal social problem that no venue is totally immune from. Proactive messaging acknowledges that the premises will act appropriately if it does crop up.

Is this the same as Ask for Angela?

No. Ask for Angela is a ‘codeword’-based poster developed in 2016 by Hayley Child, the Substance Misuse Strategy Coordinator for Lincolnshire County Council. While we support venues taking any proactive steps in this area, staff training and a clear policy on what to do in the event of a disclosure is required to build a consistent response to perpetrators of unacceptable behaviour. Good Night Out Campaign Accreditation can complement other schemes premises may already be using and we are happy to advise on how to build on your current in-house approach.

We’d like to send two members of staff to a training session so we can get accredited, how do we do this?

Good Night Out Campaign accreditation is based on ensuring that a reasonable proportion of your frontline bar and floor staff have received face-to-face training from our specialist facilitators. This is to ensure you’re able to offer the best possible response to a report of harassment. We have found that it’s both risky and an unfair level of responsibility to only have one member of staff trained up. If you would like to find out more but are not ready for accreditation, we can offer a place on a Multi-Venue Manager Awareness workshop, which looks at the broader principles of nightlife safety and can be a great first step. These are usually funded by your local council, BID or Pubwatch. Get in touch to find out more.

We’re a small venue. Can we team up with neighbouring premises and get accredited at once?

This is possible. We love small venues and can offer you a discount if you team up with others! However for the same reasons above, we can only offer this for up to three small premises at once and will assess your team’s sizes first.

I’m in a band or DJ and I want to support your work, what can I do?

Great. If you’re going on tour we can give you a supporters’ pack of badges and active bystander flyers to display at your merch desk. Why not ask for a ‘Respect Rider?’ We can show you how to incorporate safer nightlife requirements like gender neutral-bathrooms (or GNO accreditation at every tour stop!) to your rider, and help artists and agents develop contract wording for this. Let’s talk!

I don’t run a premises but I work in nightlife or events in another capacity, how else can I get involved?

That’s great! Email us. We offer lots of different types of support, consultation, policy writing and advice for all kinds of people and organisations. You might also like to check out our support page, as we’re always very grateful for fundraisers!

I don’t work in the evening and night time economy but what you do sounds really relevant to my field.

We’re connected to many other specialist sexual harassment and assault training organisations and consultants who do this type of work, why don’t you drop us a line with your needs and see if we can help.
