Stay safe this Christmas. Ask for Angela

AskforAngela is an innovative campaign enabling those who feel vulnerable in pubs and clubs to discreetly approach staff and request for assistance.

Available at participating venues in Hammersmith and across London, the ‘Ask for Angela’ initiative aims to reduce sexual violence and vulnerability by providing customers with a non-descript phrase they can use to gain assistance from staff members in order to be separated from the company of someone with whom they feel unsafe due to that person’s actions, words or behaviour.

By “asking for Angela”, an individual can alert staff that they require help. They will be taken aside, or to a safer location, so they can speak in confidence to that staff member about what assistance they need.
