Ask for Angela

Available at participating venues throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, the 'Ask for Angela' initiative aims to provide customers with a way to remove themselves from an uncomfortable situation while on a date. By "asking for Angela", an individual is alerting staff that they require help. They will be taken aside, or to a safer location, so they can speak in confidence to that staff member about what assistance they need. Options available to staff include: offering to call a taxi for the individual; providing a safe place for them to contact their friends or family; or requesting that the individual causing the distress leaves the venue. More information and details on venues taking part in the scheme can be found on leicestershire.gov.uk/AskforAngela
