The VFI in partnership with An Garda Síochána is encouraging all publicans to support the Ask for Angela campaign, which aims to stop sexual harassment and unwanted attention.

The idea behind the campaign is that anyone feeling unsafe can approach a member of staff and ask for ‘Angela’. They will then be brought to a place of safety or offered a taxi home.

Ask for Angela posters have already appeared in VFI pubs in Waterford and Cork but now the aim is for the campaign to go national.

To increase awareness amongst the public about Ask for Angela, a poster outlining the campaign’s message is available. Publicans can download and print a copy for display in their pubs.

Equally, it’s important that staff are aware of the initiative. A second poster outlining what staff should do if approached for help is also available.
