The Big Society HQ is a space for everyone. This means that it is a space free from negative actions and behaviour where everyone can feel welcomed and respected. Making this space positive is everyone’s responsibility. The BSHQ is also a space to be free of oppressive behaviour. This includes, but is not limited to: aggression (verbal and physical), homophobia, racism, sexism and transphobia and offensive humour. If you don’t feel that you will be able to help create such a space, please do not come in. The BSHQ is a space to be free of drugs at all times, there will be a designated space to consume alcohol. If concerns should arise, then they should be dealt with collectively. If you have experienced negative behaviour, then talk to the others – don’t feel you are on your own. Expect to be challenged on any behaviour contrary to the above, which might mean being asked to leave. If all this happens, together we can help to maintain this as a positive space for all!
