Securing Places of Worship at Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey, Deans Yard Entrance, 20 Deans Yard, Westminster, London, SW1P 3PA
Security and worship should be seamlessly blended for those that worship and those that visit. No place of worship is exempt from crime whether it's from an internal member of staff, an opportunistic thief or as a random act of terrorism. In-house security teams must consider threats and be ready to respond in a quick, efficient, and effective manner. Join the Security Institutes Young Members Group on Monday 8th April 2019 for an evening looking at how the iconic and prestigious Westminster Abbey successfully blends security and worship. Following a presentation about how the Abbey manages its security function delegates will then be treated to a tour of Westminster Abbey. At the conclusion of the tour there will be a short Q & A session and then some input on the Security Institutes mentoring programme. Please then join us for drinks and a buffet at a local pub!

Every year the Security Institute Chairman chooses a charity partner that the Institute supports. This year we are proud to support Send a Cow.

Send a Cow was set up by a group of Christian dairy farmers from the UK in 1988. Outraged at EU milk quotas, which were forcing them to slaughter healthy dairy cows, and in response to an appeal from Uganda for milk, they embarked on a project, which was set to become an innovative and practical charity. Uganda was just emerging from a long civil war, communities and their farmland had been destroyed and much of the country’s livestock wiped out. Several of the UK farmers flew to Africa to investigate how they could help.

In 2017 the charity Emerge Poverty Free merged with Send a Cow. Together they support even more families in Africa, empowering them to secure their own futures and helping them to lift themselves from poverty.
