The Good Night Out Campaign: evaluation of a nightlife
worker training programme to prevent sexual violence in Liverpool
In 2019, Good Night Out Campaign (GNOC) facilitators (from Liverpool Local Authority and RASA Merseyside) worked with 11 nightlife venues to engage them in the GNOC, providing guidance on preventing and responding to sexual violence, training for over 150 nightlife workers, and materials to display in venues to raise awareness of the GNOC and encourage nightlife patrons to report incidents. This report provides a summary of findings from an evaluation of the GNOC training. Findings suggest that the GNOC training programme is associated with: improvements in knowledge; improved attitudes towards sexual violence; and, greater readiness and confidence to intervene in sexual violence, amongst nightlife workers.
