Safe Shores Monitoring provides lone worker protection and support to organisations across the UK. But we also support more than organisation’s lone workers, good business practice is something we advocate and is the reason why we set up the Charity Support Programme last year.
Two of our most recent examples of this are with Kilbryde Hospice and Albyn Housing.
We attended Kilbryde Hospice’s Corporate Challenge meeting for the second year in a row. Respecting the great job the Hospice performs we wanted to assist them as they raised funds for the hospice. Kilbryde were hosting an annual raffle for this and we decided to take part and help sell raffle tickets to raise funds and awareness.
We took 25 raffle tickets off Kilbride and with great prizes such as a new car, a trip to New York and a trip to London – it wasn’t long before we had managed to sell them all to help raise £50 for the Hospice.
Kirsty Hernon, the fundraiser for Kilbryde Hospice said: “It was really great of Safe Shores Monitoring to take so many tickets to promote and assist with our annual raffle – the money raised will be put to great use at the Hospice!”
Another organisation which we provide lone worker solutions to is Albyn Housing who were hosting an all staff event to demonstrate their new computer solution.
During the event they organised a fun competition where prizes could be won. To help support the event we contributed £50 towards a ”shining staff member” to enjoy dinner at one of the quality local restaurants.
To help find the “shining staff member” we utilised our new reporting system and our Alarm Receiving Centres’ Support Team to highlight the employees within Albyn Housing who utilise our solutions to their fullest potential.
The winner of the prize chose to have her dinner voucher allocated to the lovely Dornoch Castle. Albyn Housing said:
“The prize winner was over the moon with the £50 gift voucher at one of her favourite restaurants.
“Thanks once again for Safe Shores Monitoring’s very kind support for our event!”
We pride ourselves on good business practices, with a focus on supporting those who use our lone worker solutions as well as our own employees. We recently became certified Living Wage employers to reward the hard work our employees put in to supporting our end users.
Tom Morton, CEO of Safe Shores Group said: “We recognise that the delivery of high quality lone worker products and services is dependent on a workforce that truly accepts our morals and ethics. Our commitment to the Scottish Living Wage supports our objective to ensure staff are well-rewarded, well-motivated, and well-led.”
