Get Home SafeThe Get Home Safe partnership was set up in 2002 to encourage people to get home safely after a night out in Belfast.
The group is led by the council and a range of partner agencies including the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI), Department of Justice, local universities and the Public Health Agency.
We've developed a new campaign, "Stay together, stay safe" , which we hope will make young people more aware of how their behaviour affects their safety.
This campaign shows how good and bad a night out can be, how drinking too much can affect your ability to get home safe and it encourages everyone socialising in Belfast to look after their friends. The Get Home Safe partnership also carries out the following activities to help make Belfast a safer place to socialise:
- Liaising with off-licences to stop the sale of alcohol to anyone under 18
- Providing training for off-licences
- Sharing information and best practice between different agencies
- Information sharing protocol between pubs and clubs
- Enforcing alcohol bye-laws
- Educating young people about how to use alcohol responsibly
- Providing education and training to pubs and clubs.
