Safe Haven Middlesbrough


Safe Haven for drunks and vulnerable people opens in Middlesbrough

On Friday 12th December a "Safe Haven" for drunks and vulnerable people opened on the streets of Middlesbrough, in an attempt to stop the town's Accident and Emergency services being misused.

The NHS and Middlesbrough Borough Council have provided 50,000 pounds each to pay for the scheme for a year and its hoped the programme will reduce escalating A&E costs at James Cook University Hospital.

The Safe Haven team, which will also offer help to vulnerable people who have lost their friends, will run the service from 11pm to 5am on Friday and Saturday nights. There will be two medics, three substance misuse workers from the Lifeline charity and a specially trained security man. Very basic medical support, including bandaging, will be available.

For the first few weeks the 'shelter' will be in what would be an otherwise unused ambulances and a council vehicle. It will also provide a base for the Boro Angels, volunteer street pastors who also provide help to drinkers.

Middlesbrough council have worked with counterparts already running a similar project in Newcastle which was established by Police Commissioner Vera Baird after a drunk teenage girl was thrown out of a nightclub and raped by two men.

Similar havens, or drunk tanks, already exist in Sunderland and York.

Grand Re-Opening of The Foundry, Aberdeen


Stonegate venue The Foundry in Aberdeen re-opened last Friday after undergoing a large refurbishment.

The grand re-opening took place on Friday 28th November and customers packing into the venue to enjoy the new look.

Ex Aberdeen and Scotland Manager, Craig Brown was also in attendance to cut the ribbon and officially open the new Foundry. There was even a piper playing bagpipes to entertain the customers as they entered the pub.

We provide SIA Licensed Door Supervisors to manage security at the venue and it was great for our staff to be back and involved in the re-launch.

Beware of Phone Thieves


New Police & Venue Initiative in Middlesbrough

This weekend Door Supervisors in Middlesbrough were busy playing their part in a new police and venue initiative that has been launched in the city to help reduce mobile phone crime.

Flares seems to be a target venue for thieves as it is a busy, well-liked venue situated in the centre of the city.

Our Door Supervisors helped make customers aware of the issue, using a hand stamp with the message "beware of phone thieves."

Great work team.
