Safety and Accessibility

Safety

"We are committed to providing a space where everyone feels safe and included. Together with you as players we are an international community of LARPers coming from diverse communities,  levels of experience and confidence. We are used to different safety systems and stem from cultures with wildly varying norms.  This is partly what makes international LARP so great but it also means we have to make more of an effort to communicate with each other to ensure we are all on the same page.  As organisers we aim to provide transparency and clarity in order to give you the tools and information you need to ensure your own safety and the safety of others during the larp.  We will have a code of conduct and a guide to encouraged behaviour, to make sure people start with a common understanding of what is deemed acceptable/unacceptable. As expected, we will have a communication system so that you can calibrate with fellow players in game.
 
We are running this larp as a private event and as such we retain the right to remove or sanction any individual whose actions threaten the safety of attendees or who fail to adhere to the code of conduct. We are not legally obliged to provide any explanation for taking these actions. We will stand with victims and those who report unacceptable behaviour.  We are not here to work out personal differences or conflicts nor are we here to investigate criminal behaviour. We are here to promote safety and inclusion for all the participants of this larp and we take this role seriously.

Accessibility

We aim to minimize obstacles to people being able to participate in this LARP, however every person with accessibility needs is an individual so rather than try to cover all eventualities we will provide information on what we know and ask that you contact us with your particular requirements as early as possible so we can explore what can be done.
 
LARPS are hugely fun but they can drain even the fittest of us so practice good self care before, during and after the LARP and let us know with as much notice as possible what you may need.

We recommend that potential participants with accessibility needs look to the information on the Countryside Mobility site  
There is also detailed information HERE

Please note that the Island power supply is by generator, which is switched off at night between midnight and 6am. If you have a medical need that requires power through the night, you will need to bring a battery or power bank capable of powering your machine through the night.
