Safety is a top priority across the Uber platform. We are committed to ensuring we have robust processes and cutting-edge features built into our technology to help ensure the safety of everyone who uses our app. This includes working with safety experts and regulators across Australia to raise the bar on safety.

Our commitment to safety extends to the heart of the nightlife experience, recognising the significant impact that ridesharing platforms have. From cutting-edge technology to rigorous screenings and policies, our commitment to safety is woven into every aspect of the Uber experience.

As we help millions of people move around their cities to events over the coming Summer months, we’re continuing to put safety at the core of everything we do.

Community Partners

At Angela Safety, we are transforming nightlife safety. Our mission is to ensure that everyone can enjoy their nights out with confidence and security. In a world where women, the LGBTQIA+ community and so many other minority groups face disproportionately high rates of sexual violence, change needs to be made. We believe we are a part of that change.

We are creating a revolutionary app designed to increase safety for all patrons, with a focus on groups that face disproportionately high rates of sexual violence. The app provides an effective and simple platform that allows patrons to discreetly alert venue staff when they are in an uncomfortable or potentially dangerous situation. This alert provides essential information, including the urgency of the situation, the nature of the situation, the user’s location, and their profile picture. Empowered with our comprehensive training, staff will be equipped to effectively utilise this info to locate, identify and help users get to safety.

Dance Without Fear is a Melbourne-based initiative on a mission to combat sexual violence in nightlife environments and champion the creation of safer spaces. Initially conceived as a university assignment, it now aspires to be a driving force of change.


Dance Without Fear focuses on raising awareness, empowering individuals, and fostering a party culture characterised by inclusivity and respect. Their vision is one where every individual can enjoy a night out without the looming threat of sexual violence.

What Were You Wearing? Australia (WWYW) is a grassroots community organisation fighting to end sexual violence by survivors, for survivors. Their aim is to generate advocacy, awareness and education by working with institutions, schools, universities and government to make the world a safer place.


With sexual violence being one of the biggest issues Australians are facing, the WWYW team creates events, protests and panel events to encourage awareness and work towards positive and impactful change. The WWYW team also provides education to the community on sexual violence, consent, sex, life after trauma and respectful relationships in order to change damaging perspectives around victim blaming.


As part of a range of services offered by WWYW, the team can be found at many Australian festivals, universities and music venues creating safe spaces. Similarly to She’s A Crowd, WWYW also offers an online space for survivors of sexual violence to share their stories, where users can write about their experiences in their own words.


After a 6-month campaign led by What Were You Wearing? Australia this year, Liquor and Gaming NSW are now set to make drink-spiking guidance and sexual violence awareness training a requirement under the Liquor Intoxication Guidelines and RSA certification. This was a vital step in drawing attention to the pervasiveness of drinking spiking and sexual violence in nightlife settings and ensuring that staff are equipped to make safer spaces for women and gender-diverse people. ⁠ ⁠

On the CUSP is an independent, female-led business that delivers sexual violence awareness and respectful relationship consulting and training for the workplace.

DanceWize NSW is the peak peer-based harm reduction provider for enhancing the well-being and safety of festival attendees in NSW.


The DanceWize NSW team work closely with organisers and emergency services to provide patrons with safe care spaces, Ministry of Health-approved resources on substances and festival essentials such as sunscreen and earplugs.


But the biggest benefit we offer is our trained team members who provide comprehensive and judgement-free harm-reduction advice to festivalgoers. Our volunteers come directly from the festival scene, bringing their own lived and living experiences into their work. This means they are relatable, approachable, and trustworthy to the community we service. Through their personal experiences and specialised training, our team is highly effective at harm reduction by authentically connecting with patrons.


At festivals, our dedicated care spaces operate with medical units to ensure immediate action during emergencies. Our first-aid certified rovers, recognisable by their purple shirts and free lollipops, mean we can provide help almost anywhere on festival grounds.


In the past five years, we have interacted with over 430,000 festival patrons, offered health and drug/alcohol harm reduction education to more than 37,000 and assisted roughly 3,000 people in our care spaces.
