Ask For Angela

Staffordshire Police are supporting the “Ask for Angela” campaign for customer safety in England that started in 2016. It is used by bars and other venues to keep people safe from sexual assault by using a codeword to identify when they are in danger or are in an uncomfortable situation. The campaign aims to help anyone who feels unsafe in night-time venues, including bars, pubs and clubs. Many venues support the scheme. 

They might call security, lead the person to a safe space, or help them leave the premises unnoticed.

This could be on a night out, on a date, meeting friends and other situations. Ask for Angela is needed because :-

97% of women aged 18-24 and 80% of all women said they have been sexually harassed in public spaces in the U K.

54% of women experience sexual harassment in a pub, club or bar. 

One in five LGBT people have experienced a hate crime or incident because of their sexual orientation or gender in the last 12 months.
