stop ! sv is a training programme designed to support a range of partners in preventing sexual violence in the night-time environment, particularly within pubs, bars and nightclubs. Sexual violence has considerable negative impacts on those visiting and working in nightlife, as well as wider communities and public services. It can also harm the night-time economy if individuals are reluctant to visit and use these spaces through fear of experiencing sexual violence.

The stop ! sv programme focuses on increasing the capacity of staff working in nightlife (e.g. bar servers, door staff) to recognise and prevent sexual violence within the workplace, and their ability and willingness to respond through positive bystander intervention.

This manual provides stakeholders engaged in the night-time environment with:

  • A training programme designed to develop nightlife workers’ capacity, ability and willingness to identify, prevent and response to sexual violence in the night-time environment.
  • Information, tools and techniques to support implementation of the training programme.
  • A strategic framework to support the development, implementation and impact of the training programme
