Statement James Lindsay, CEO/Managing Director

On Thursday 6 March 2020 the Royal Vauxhall Tavern was the first LGBTQ venue to deliver a Welfare & Vulnerability Engagement Training Programme and I would like to express my sincere thanks to our staff and promoters who attended this worthwhile and invaluable training session delivered by Safer Business Network.

The programme covered the following key principles:

  • To prevent and reduce violent crime linked to the licensed economy
  • To prevent and reduce sexual offences
  • To reduce preventable injury linked to alcohol and drug use
  • To reduce opportunities for criminal activity and anti-social behaviour

The RVT Code of Conduct Manifesto and the Incident Escalation Process is now in place.
