Ask for Angela
The Ask for Angela campaign aims to support people who may feel unsafe, intimidated or vulnerable on a night out.
It has been rolled out in Melton by the BID and Purple Flag Partnership, to offer support for anyone on a night out, who might find themselves feeling uncomfortable, vulnerable or even threatened.
Any person who feel they need support should approach the staff of the premises they are in and use the code words “Is Angela In?”; staff will then know that the person is in need of assistance and will help to remove them from the situation discretely.
The poster, which is being displayed in all the evening businesses in the town centre, will hopefully provide a vital life-line to someone who may find themselves in a difficult situation that they can’t get out of.
