The Warehouse Project aims to make dancefloors safer with new in-app welfare features

Manchester’s The Warehouse Project has updated its mobile app to include a number of new features aiming to help keep clubbers safe.

The new-and-improved app allows attendees to contact the promoters directly if they need to report a non-urgent incident - and for emergency response services, the Welfare station is available for essential on-site assistance.

Alongside this, WHP has added an interactive map to help people find their friends, a loud siren to alert those nearby of any danger, an option for emergency calls to your contacts and a non-emergency incident button.

The app also features drug safety alerts, with information coming from the club night's own on-site drug testing service.

Test reports will be sent through push notifications, with information from lab partners MANDRAKE, a harm reduction and drug testing facility based at Manchester Metropolitan University.

“We are excited to work alongside The Warehouse Project again this season," said Gemma Bennet, Director at W.E.L.Safe CIC. "This year we will be back and better than ever, introducing new outreach workers in the venue alongside our amazing welfare team. No matter what help or support you need on-site, we've got you covered."

The app will also be supported by the club’s wifi network, which is free to use and allows those inside to stay in contact with friends and use the app throughout events. Warehouse Project is reportedly the largest scale club to install a free wifi service.

Director of Operations at Warehouse Project, Kim O’Brien, said on the initiative: “The team has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure customers’ experience and welfare are our top priorities, and to deliver the best on-site experience possible for everyone involved.”
