Useful ideas and tips to support your assessment

 

Here are some useful links and articles to support your Best Bar None assessment. If you have queries, please also contact the national co-ordinator - or your local co-ordinator.

 

 

ASK FOR ANGELA 

Best Bar None is supporting the #AskForAngela campaign - and encouraging BBN venues across Scotland to use this fantastic initiative as part of their social responsibility toolkit.

The idea is that anyone in a pub, club or bar who needs help to get out of situation, such as a disastrous date, can ask a member of staff for Angela. Using the simple code word will alert the staff that there’s an issue with your date and they will help you get out of the situation safely and discreetly. 

 

125 ML CAMPAIGN 

Smaller wine glass sizes in pubs and clubs can help to promote responsible consumption and contribute to positive public health. The Scottish Alcohol Industry Partnership (SAIP) and Best Bar None Scotland are working together to raise the awareness and promotion of 125ml wine measures within licensed premises.

 

 

DIAGEO LEARNING FOR LIFE - EMPLOYABILITY 

BBN venues have a great opportunity to work with The Springboard Charity via their ‘Diageo Learning for Life’ programme. The key objective is helping unemployed individuals (sometimes long term unemployed) back into work and into a sustainable and progressive career/industry.
