Petition Action

Require bar/club staff to be trained in dealing with spiking incidents

Petition Details

We believe that bar/club staff should be required to be trained to identify symptoms of spiking and what action to take if they suspect someone has been spiked. This should ensure staff are better able to identify and respond to these situations.

Additional Information

Drink and needle spiking is increasing among young people in night clubs and bars. The Government must take action to try and ensure the wellbeing of victims. Drink and needle spiking can have devastating physical or mental health consequences on victims.

We believe that training of club/bar staff is necessary to ensure that victims receive the help and support they need to minimise the effects of spiking incidents.
