Campaigning to make our bars, pubs and clubs sexual harassment free zones.

Shout Up! is a project devised by Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland in 2017, it aims to end sexual harassment in the night-time economy.

Northamptonshire is the first region outside of Newcastle to roll out Shout Up! By adopting a zero-tolerance approach to sexual harassment, bars pubs and clubs become safer places for women and men.

ShoutUp! Northamptonshire, in collaboration with Northamptonshire Rape Crisis, trains staff and certifies venues as sexual harassment free zones.
