Ask for Angela is the scheme that aims to ensure that anyone who is feeling vulnerable or unsafe is able to get the support they need. This could be on a night out, on a date, meeting friends and other situations.
Ask for Angela is needed because:
97% of women aged 18-24 have experienced sexual harassment
80% of all women said they had been sexually harassed in public spaces in the UK
53% of women experience sexual harassment in a pub, club or bar
* Source: UN women UK data 2022 and Yougov Survey 2017
The initiative works by training staff in vulnerability management and what to do when someone Asks for Angela.
The trained member of staff (now a ‘capable guardian’) will understand the person asking is in need of help and support and will be able to respond in an appropriate, discreet way. For example, they might call security, lead the person to a safe space, or help them leave the premises unnoticed.
The training also means that staff members are more proactive in spotting the signs that someone is in a vulnerable situation, before a situation even arises.
We need to raise match funding to support our National Lottery Community Fund grant application which will be used to grow our Ambassadors Scheme, raising the public profile of Ask for Angela, and to produce more free resources to help towns, cities and individuals reduce violence against women and girls.
