Ask for Angela – Violence reduction for women and girls

Date: Monday, 24th Jun 2024 | Category: General

As part of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Violence Reduction Alliance’s (VRA) commitment to tackle violence against women and girls (VAWG), we have produced an Ask for Angela campaign partner pack (attached) and will be raising awareness of the initiative during the Euros 2024.

The Ask for Angela initiative aims to ensure that anyone feeling vulnerable or unsafe is able to get discreet support. This could be on a night out, on a date or meeting friends. The initiative works by training staff in vulnerability management and what to do when someone ‘Asks for Angela’. When a trained member of staff hears the code-phrase they will understand the person needs support and will be able to respond in an appropriate, discreet way.

The campaign partner pack includes a range of resources to help venues to train staff and implement Ask for Angela, and national and local resources to promote the initiative to the public. Inside the partner pack you will find:

  • Local posters
  • National posters
  • Staff workbooks
  • Social media assets
  • Suggested social media posts
  • Video
  • Vulnerability training
