Charity Support Programme

To celebrate 20 years of protecting people at risk we have launched the Charity Support Programme, in partnership with our new sister company, Safe Shores Monitoring.

We will be working with some incredible national and local charities to support four projects which align with our companies’ values; and which we hope also align with your values.

With your support we hope to raise up to £25,000 through donations and fundraising for these worthwhile projects.

Whilst we will be providing cash to these worthwhile causes we want you to get involved too.

We think your organisation could collaborate, perhaps complete a Tough Mudder together, or perhaps you got Mary Berry-like talents in your workplace who could host a world-class bake sale?

Our charities have loads of fundraising events and activities on, and we can help you get you started on your fundraising journey by providing you with the cash to support your activities.

The Charities

Help for Heroes

We will help fund the recovery and support for the Armed Forces community whose lives are affected by their service. All the courses and activities offered by Help for Heroes help the wounded, injured and sick look beyond illness and injury, regain their purpose, reach their potential and have a positive impact on society.

Carers Trust

Working with Carers Trust we will help fund the provision of valuable respite for young carers.

SAMH

We are supporting two campaigns by SAMH, these are: ‘Workplace Wellbeing’ which supports those affected by stress impacting on work and well-being; and ‘Employ-Able’, in partnership with Poppyscotland, which supports citizens and veterans into employment.

We will donate a percentage of our annual income to charities within this programme and we would like you, as a valued customer, to choose where it goes.

Half of our donation is guaranteed to be given directly to one of our nominated charities.

The other half can be allocated back to you in return for a pledge to raise further funds for one of these charities.
