Stamp Out Spiking is a Community Interest Company, established to tackle the increasing incidents of drink spiking in the UK. It was founded by a team, with professional experience in areas such as alcohol awareness workshops and the welfare of young people.
Drink spiking comes in many forms. We exist to highlight the dangers of spiking, and offer effective and practical solutions to keep you and your friends safe in pubs, clubs, parties, festivals and beyond.
We all know someone who has had their drink spiked. Thankfully, most cases of drink spiking don’t end tragically... but they can: rape, robbery or even death are all reported outcomes, so the consequences can be utterly devastating. With your help, we aim to stamp out drink spiking in the UK.
We are here to educate people about the dangers of spiking and the fact it's never acceptable. We offer resources and solutions that will help people to stay safe until drink spiking is no more. Our range of StopTopps lids and foils are designed to deter anyone from adding alcohol or drugs to your drink without your consent.
