Together Della Clayton & Elysia O’Neill lead the Safe Places Project and are founders of The Egalitarian.

Della focusses on changing the current narrative within the night-time economy of the treatment of intoxicated people, specifically women and marginalised genders. She champions the vision that venues within the nighttime economy should have an increased responsibility to protect all members of society but particularly those more vulnerable to risks of harm such as women, members of the LGBTQ+ society and young people. Using her combined experiences as a customer and employee of the nighttime economy, Della ensures the Safe Place Project is community-led and victim-focused.

Elysia is passionate about empowering women and marginalised genders in the night-time economy. Elysia’s experiences of sexual violence, misogyny and spiking as a customer in the beer industry and member of staff in hospitality, as well as hundreds of conversations with victims through The Egalitarian, drive everything she does to push the inclusion agenda forwards in the industry. Elysia empowers venues to respond to issues in victim-led responses whilst focussing on identifying suspicious perpetrator behaviours.
