Safe Clubbing Pack

In the small town of Swindon, South England, Clubbers are being handed party bags containing essential items in order to protect them throughout their hedonistic evening. The kits contain a bottle of water to prevent dehydration, lollipops to raise blood sugar level as it has been proven low blood sugar can cause aggressive behaviour. There are also flip flops so women can walk home safely as the town has encountered many injuries from women walking home barefoot. Condoms are also provided for obvious reasons.

The scheme has already been successful in a smaller town in south wales, and so Swindon's Community Safety Partnership have adopted a similar approach, supported by two popular nightclubs.
