What is Licensing SAVI?
Licensing Security and Vulnerability Initiative (Licensing SAVI) is a confidential self-assessment tool designed to help the owners and operators of licensed premises provide a safer and more secure environment for their managers, staff, customers and local communities. It does this by providing personalised advice and recommendations, many of which will assist you in working closely with Responsible Authorities and comply with the Licensing Act 2003, promoting its four Licensing Objectives:
- The Prevention of Crime and Disorder
- Public Safety
- The Prevention of Public Nuisance
- The Protection of Children from Harm
YouGov research commissioned by Licensing SAVI shows how important safety has become in the hospitality sector today with women and individuals from minority groups among those feeling most vulnerable.
