We love raising the bar when it comes to nightlife safety and work with a wide range of public, private and community organisations to deliver projects and partnerships.

We can support you through any project with a prevention or response focus, and provide accessible expert advice on design and programme delivery. We also work in partnership with other gendered violence organisations to deliver our accreditation programme.

Reframe the Night 2022

Myth-busting Campaign

In January 2022 we were commissioned by City of London Corporation to develop an updated and refreshed version of our popular myth-busting campaign. Displayed online and in physical locations around the borough, the posters targeted high traffic areas such as Liverpool street station, challenging harmful attitudes with smart reframes to start conversation.

A large screen displays a Reframe The Night poster in a busy public space. The posted depicts two illustrative abstract heads facing each other. One of the heads says 'we used to have fun at work, but you can't say anything these days', to which the other responds, 'fun for who? If people are your punchlines, it's time to change the script.'

#SafeToSay – Wales Violence Prevention Unit

Active Bystander Campaign

We developed a striking bilingual Active Bystander campaign and toolkit for the Wales Violence Prevention Unit in the nighttime economy areas of Cardiff in 2021.

The aim was to encourage and equip people to speak up if they recognise or have concerns about someone’s attitude or behaviour, and to progress the conversation on from what is not okay, to what they can do about it.

Reframe the Night

Myth-busting Campaign

In 2019, we worked with Hackney Council and the City of London Corporation to develop myth-busting messaging for billboards, bus stops and public spaces around both boroughs, aimed at challenging the common myths about who is responsible for sexual violence in nightlife.

In the top-left corner is the Hackney Nights logo, with the slogan 'Keeping you safe at Night', while the top right has the #ReframeTheNight hashtag, with 'Let's make these beliefs a thing of the past' underneath. Large text in a handwriting font then reads, in quotation marks, 'If you go out dressed like that, what do you expect?'. Underneath, in a smaller sans-serif font, text reads 'No matter how we choose to dress, we deserve and expect respect. Let's blame sexual harrassment on the person choosing to act out of line, not someone's outfit.' At the bottom of the poster are the City of London, Good Night Out and Hackney Council logos.

Greater London Authority

Night Czar Amy Lamé invited us to develop the Women’s Night Safety Charter, a London-wide commitment for organisations active between 6pm-6am, part of the Mayor’s Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy and London’s commitment to the UN Women Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces global initiative.

Healthy Music Audiences

We are specialist partners on the project alongside Musicians’ Union, White Ribbon, Girls Against and Safe Gigs For Women.

Attitude Is Everything

Disability-led Charity

Attitude is Everything improves Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music by working in partnership with venues, audiences, artists and the music industry. We brought together a team of women and non-binary Deaf and disabled live music fans to workshop their ideas and experiences of safety in nighlife settings. This session was co-facilitated by GNO trainer Alex Duffy and podcaster Joy Addo. From this, we have produced a training video and online content to support our shared aims for access and inclusion for all. We’re committed to a long-term collaboration. This project is funded by ROSA.

Wild City

Indian and South Asian Music Platform

We worked with The Wild City, India, to develop content for The Selector Pro, a British Council funded programme aimed at supporting women in electronic music in India. We designed two workshops for The Wild City. One was a 1.5 hr Gender Sensitisation workshop aimed at security staff across Delhi, the other was a 2hr Understanding and Preventing Sexual Violence in Nightlife session aimed at local music industry leaders. Both sessions included custom materials and supporting documents to be translated into Hindi in collaboration with local consultants, and we provided support and guidance on the delivery.

“Now I understand how to respect women.”

Birmingham & Solihull Women’s Aid

Domestic Violence and Abuse Support Service

We partnered with Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid, a specialist service supporting women and children affected by domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, FGM or forced marriage. We trained BSWA workers to deliver our accreditation programme locally, enabling a pilot cohort of eight city centre clubs and bars to better understand, respond to and prevent sexual harassment and assault on their premises. We then surveyed nightlife users to understand their attitudes to safety locally. An in-depth evaluation is being undertaken by Dr. Zara Quigg of Liverpool John Moores university will demonstrate the impact of our work and its application in different UK nightlife contexts. This partnership is funded by ROSA.

Phoenix Staffing

Event Staffing Agency

This women-powered promotional staffing agency approached us to help them put worker safety at the heart of their operation. We undertook an overview of their client contracts, policies and handbook for contractors. Then we delivered two interactive workshops about sexual harassment and assault, legal and ethical frameworks, touching on consent and boundaries. We found that the team serving shots at nightclubs were experiencing high levels of unwanted sexual behaviour and weren’t always clear on their rights to safety in the workplace. We wrote two new bespoke policies on sexual harassment and safety to help Phoenix ensure all clients upheld their values and contractors felt empowered to report. We also collaborated on a clear process for managers providing support in the event of an incident, including suitable signposting to specialist services.
