Working with licensed premises of all sizes and shapes is where we began and remains at the heart of what we do.

We try our best to make what we do affordable for you and can also help you to ask your local authority to fund your accreditation. Premises we’ve worked with include Printworks, The Village Underground, The Brudenell Social Club, Leeds’ Headrow House, Ministry of Sound, The Brighton Dome and many Wetherspoons, Fullers and Stonegate pubs.

A 2020 evaluation of our work found that 97.8% of participants felt that the training had improved their knowledge on how to respond to sexual violence in nightlife. Sound good?

  1. Policy

    First we have a chat about your needs, providing a best practice policy document and procedure in line with licensing objectives and legal frameworks. It lays out what to do and say (and what not to say or do!) when gender-based violence happens. We negotiate a cost that works for you and sign an agreement to work together on this.

  2. Training

    Training is what we’re known for. Our core staff skills session is Understanding and Responding to Sexual Harassment and Assault in Licensed Premises, and can be delivered on Zoom or on-site. It covers a range of key topics in a sensitive yet informal way, and is delivered by two specialist trained facilitators who can support anyone who may be impacted by the content.

    Our training is proven to increase confidence, knowledge and skills after just a single 2.5 hour session. Following the session we supply you with evaluation data compiled from your team’s feedback, meaning you will be able measure the positive changes with your team as you move forward.

    Themes addressed include:

    • Understanding and defining sexual harassment and assault
    • Racism, homophobia and LGTBQ+ harassment
    • Myths and realities of sexual harassment and assault.
    • What are the barriers to reporting an incident in your premises?
    • Appropriate and inappropriate responses
    • Record keeping, reporting to the authorities
    • Understanding consent and the law
    • How to create an environment that doesn’t tolerate harassment
    • Working sensitively

    Each participant receives a personal Workers’ Guide and certificates to keep.

  3. Communication

    Accredited premises receive badges, window clings and a full-colour poster pack which are displayed in bathrooms and communal areas, as well as a certificate for behind the bar. Our logo and posters are internationally recognised and communicate a positive message that encourages reporting, letting customers know your staff are trained appropriately. This can be co-branded with your logos.

  4. Ongoing Support

    As well as being on hand to discuss your concerns around any incidents, we offer a quarterly check with advice and encouragement in for all our accredited premises. Our team can support you in improving your response to sexual violence in the long term. After your first year with us, optional reaccreditation and refresher training is offered on a discounted basis.
