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 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.
The scheme is now open to all businesses in Liverpool thanks to funding from Liverpool BID Company and Culture Liverpool.
