Back Off. Back Up. is rallying Brighton businesses to help people feel safer on the streets. A yellow and black Back Off. Back Up. sticker in a storefront indicates that anyone feeling concerned can go inside and find help. They can use the safe spot to:

First Things First: Workshops
We want to make sure that all of your team feel confident in their ability to help, so the first step will be to take part in our safety workshop. This is designed to give you the tools to handle situations calmly and discretely and ensures that all of our venues are on the same page. Once you’ve completed the workshop with flying colours, you’ll receive your storefront sticker!

The 5-Star System
Our Back Off. Back Up. app features a 5-star safety rating system for each venue. This is designed to give people a chance to review their experience and let us know where there may be room for improvement. Any venue that averages 3 stars or less will be reviewed so we can see what’s going wrong and how we can fix it together.
Safe Spaces Subscription
In Spring 2023, we will introduce a monthly scaling subscription fee for venues that are committed to being part of Back Off. Back Up.
This covers the behind-the-scenes costs that ensure we can market each venue as a safe space, run the initial safety workshops, keep the app running smoothly and provide our wonderful Safety Angels to staff events in person where necessary.
