JJ's launches 'We Care' scheme for clubbers

Coventry Editorial 23rd Jul, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A COVENTRY nightclub is being congratulated by police for its new campaign to help party-goers stay safe on nights out.

JJ’s, on Croft Road, is being praised for its We Care programme which aims to give clubbers the tools they need to stay safe on a night out in the city.

The scheme, thought to be the first of its kind in the region, will include a taxi escort service for vulnerable individuals, anti-drink spiking plugs, free handbag cloakroom service, free phone charging stations and access to the club’s landline free of charge for those who lose their phone.

The venue has also introduced female Customer Care Ambassadors, who will be available at weekends to help with any queries or questions from customers.

The scheme was the brainchild of the club’s Deputy Manager, Vicky Groom, who said: “Creating a fun and safe night out for our customers is our main priority.

“We have always had a duty of care towards our customers but felt that we needed to wrap it up in more cohesive campaign, to raise awareness and demonstrate that ‘We Care’.”

Inspector Sarah Tambling from Coventry’s Partnerships Team said the campaign was a ‘fantastic concept’ and was an example of what other venues could do to recognise and protect vulnerable people.

To complement the scheme, staff at JJ’s have been trained to look out for vulnerable customers, offer support and question anyone leaving the venue alone.
