Back Off. Back Up for Mobile Users
At Back Off Back Up, we're on a mission to create a reliable network of safe and welcoming spaces across the UK, one venue at a time. To make your journey even easier, we've created the BOBU app.
With the BOBU app, you can find vetted safe spaces throughout the UK. It's your personal guide to discovering welcoming venues where you can be your authentic self.
Our approach is straightforward yet powerful. We invite independent venues to join us in our mission. To identify these venues, simply look for the BOBU sticker or search your local area using the BOBU App. When you see a BOBU-approved venue, you'll know that it's a place that prioritizes your safety and acceptance.
And here's the best part – you can also rate the venues on how safe you felt through the app. Your feedback helps us maintain the quality and safety of our network. So, as you explore the diverse venues in the UK, be on the lookout for BOBU stickers and download our app. They signify that you've found a safe and supportive place where help is always within reach.
These stickers represent our commitment to ensuring that you can be yourself without worry. Whether you're heading out for a night on the town, seeking a cosy spot to relax, or looking for a venue to celebrate, BOBU-approved spaces have got your back. These are places where you can be yourself, free from judgment or discrimination.
But there's more to it. We provide venues with BOBU training, where they learn to "Embrace, Celebrate, Thrive." This means that you can also seek help when needed. The trained staff is ready to support you in any way necessary, ensuring your experience is safe and enjoyable.
