The campaign “Ask for Angela” was only ever intended for a small council in the UK, but after being shared online its message is being spread around the world.
The Lincolnshire county council launched its #NoMore campaign — encompassing the brilliant Ask For Angela initiative — to begin a fundamental “culture change” in the area.
The idea promptly went viral when posted by a Twitter user who saw this poster on the back of a toilet door:
Essentially, if a patron at the venue was feeling like something wasn’t right in a situation, or that it could become dangerous, they can simply walk up to the bar and “ask for Angela”.
In return, the staff will help find them a way to leave as soon and as discreetly, as possible. Brilliant.
