Ask for Angela

Feeling threatened or unsafe? On a date that isn’t working out? Or does it all just feel a bit weird? Ask for Angela in participating venues across the Wakefield district. 

Staff will then know you want discreet help and can assist you without fuss by for example:

  • calling and helping you to a taxi
  • providing a safe space
  • reuniting you with a friend
  • calling venue security and/or the police if needed and safe to do so

Working in partnership with West Yorkshire Police, we’ve ensured that staff at participating venues are trained to help you out of your situation without judgement so you can continue to enjoy your time and most importantly stay safe. 

So, if you need help to get out of your situation, just speak out.

Become a Supporting Venue

If you’re interested in being a participating venue and helping keep more people safe in the Wakefield district, get in touch. 

Our dedicated team can provide you with further information on the Ask for Angela campaign, deliver training to staff, and arrange getting supportive material to you for use. 

Ready to become a venue that supports Ask for Angela?  Watch the National Pubwatch video and share it with your staff as part of their training.
