An update from WITSU on the Purple Flag in Waterford

October is designated as Purple Flag month – during this month, all Purple Flag locations are celebrating achieving Purple Flag status.

Waterford first secured the Purple Flag status in 2015 and has been renewed each year since then in recognition of the management of the evening and night time economy in Waterford.

Purple Flag Working Group: local stakeholders meet regularly to discuss projects and actions for the Zone area:

–  Late night venues work with Gardai to develop and promote policies and procedures for the City Safe programme

–  WITSU, the Gardai and local venues have introduced the ‘Ask for Angela’ personal safety campaign

–  Promotion of Waterford city centre as a safe, vibrant destination for a night out

WITSU are delighted to work closely with Waterford City Council, Local Businesses and the Purple Flag Committee to make sure that the student’s of WIT can feel safe and comfortable in the city. To find out more about Purple Flag in Waterford Contact Darren your Welfare Officer at
