ATMOS VR LTD
Safer Clubbing Policy - May 2022
ATMOS VR LTD operates a zero-tolerance policy for any kind of abuse to staff and customers.
At the Freedom Rooms venue we operate both the #AskForAngela & #AskForClive schemes.
The schemes serve the following purpose:
Ask For Angela
People who feel unsafe, vulnerable, or threatened can discreetly seek help by approach any member of staff and asking them for ‘Angela’. This code-phrase will indicate to staff that they require help with their situation and a trained member of staff will then look to support and assist them. This might be through reuniting them with a friend, seeing them to a taxi, or by calling venue security and/or the police.
Ask For Clive
Similar to the “Ask for Angela” scheme, this scheme deals with any homophobic or transphobic abuse. If someone doesn’t feel safe or feels uncomfortable either from comments made or actions made towards them, they can approach any member of staff and ask for ‘Clive’. The member of staff will know that there is a situation relating to homophobic or transphobic abuse and help the customer to feel safe.
Under both schemes, when one of the key names is mentioned to a staff member, they should inform a manager, supervisor, or team leader, so they can monitor the situation and assist where necessary.
All Freedom Rooms staff will receive training on both schemes within the first 2 weeks of their employment within the Bar Training module provided by the venue management team. Staff will then receive training refreshers on a bi-annual basis.
This Safer Clubbing Policy statement will be regularly reviewed and updated as necessary. The Company Directors endorse this policy statement and are fully committed to its implementation.
