You’re Safe Here is a free accreditation scheme to reassure the public that they are safe in your venue and that your staff know what to do.
LCR Pride Foundation are working with the Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside, Emily Spurrell, Stop Hate UK and Liverpool Nightlife CIC to provide venues with training and resources to enable them to support someone that has been the victim of a crime, feels intimidated or is in need of assistance.
To receive the accreditation and be listed as part of the scheme, venues must have a number of their staff (proportionate to the size of their venue) take part in a short training course and commit to displaying the accreditation mark publicly, as well as the safety information cards in staff room areas.
Training will take place throughout the year for venues to sign up and will cover what to do if someone needs support, where they can be signposted to and information about support services across the Liverpool City Region.
Venues in Liverpool operating in the Evening and Night Time Economy, or Cultural Venues can now sign up to the training, with the first dates in early October, by clicking the button below.
Please note: The form must be filled in for each individual venue. If you have multiple venues and would like to sign them all up to the accreditation, please contact [email protected]
We are working with a number of partners to extend the scheme across the Liverpool City Region as well as to more sectors over the coming weeks. If you’d like to be informed when this is available please complete the form here.
This scheme is funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside, Emily Spurrell. With support from Stop Hate UK, Liverpool City Council Alcohol and Tobacco Unit and Liverpool Nightlife CIC.
Thanks to funding from Culture Liverpool, as part of a Public Art Response to recent hate crimes, with Homotopia, we have also been able to extend the scheme to Cultural Venues.
