Keeping vulnerable people safe at Christmas: a seasonal safeguarding reminder for Door Supervisors

Christmas is coming, and pubs and clubs will soon be full of Christmas get-togethers, office parties, and people celebrating the arrival of the holidays. It s also a time when some people can find themselves in a dangerous situation, either inside a venue or out on the streets, and need extra protection. Door supervisors can make a big difference to the outcome of a night out by intervening to assist a vulnerable person in trouble, and helping them to make it home safe. We want to reinforce some of the key messages from our SIA-mandated door supervisor training, and emphasise the importance of safeguarding vulnerable people in the night time economy.

How can a door supervisor can help to keep vulnerable people safe?

Recognise the risks to vulnerable people being ejected from, or refused entry to a venue:

  • Being under the influence of drink or drugs
  • Being assaulted
  • Being alone
  • Receiving unwanted attention
  • Domestic violence
  • Being too young to look after themselves
  • Becoming the target of a sexual predator

What actions can be taken by a door supervisor to protect vulnerable people?

  • Call a friend or relative to assist them
  • Call a licensed taxi to take them home
  • Use a safe haven
  • Ask street pastors or street marshals to assist
  • Call the police

Can you recognise behaviours that could indicate potential sexual predators? These often include:

  • A lone male seen pestering a customer or member of staff
  • A heavily intoxicated female leaving with a male
  • A regular attendee frequently leaving with different intoxicated females
  • Finding a date-rape type drug on a person during a search
