Tell the Government - Take Action on Spiking!

419 of 500 signatures

Amid continuing concern over a significant rise in the number of people reporting being spiked, including so-called ‘injection spiking' we are calling on the Government to introduce legislation to better protect those at risk.

The three measures we are calling for are:

1) The first is test strips for all, we want spiking test strips to be free and widely available at venues, backed by government funding if necessary. A scheme promoting this has already been successfully launched in Lincolnshire.

2) Specified training; venue staff and police need to be trained to spot the signs of spiking and how to handle a crisis when it comes about. There are all too many reports of people that are spiked being chucked out of nightclubs and ending up alone and vulnerable.

3) Tougher sentences for those found guilty of having spiked people.
