Every year the Security Institute Chairman chooses a charity partner that we work with throughout the year. In 2017 we are proud to support emerge poverty free.

About their work:

Emerge poverty free believes in a world where every person has the opportunity to reach their full potential poverty free.

It is this passion that has driven just eight hard working staff – plus the help of many volunteers – to benefit over 113,855 children and adults in east Africa who have sought to lift themselves out of poverty this past year.

To make a lasting difference, we work alongside people in some of the poorest countries on earth to ensure they have the knowledge and resources to put an end to poverty themselves. By using this approach we provide sustainable change that continues after our support has moved on.

Our strategy is based on a variety projects that not only address the specific issues of poverty but also lead to better access to education for children – the key to long term impact. Clean water, better sanitation, improved agriculture, income generation, adult literacy and women empowerment are just a few of the achievements we have helped people accomplish, and we invite you to join us in our mission to see even more people find their path out of poverty.


Our Sponsors

Corporate Partners

The following Corporate Partners help the Security Institute in our work to deliver quality to the sector, value to organisations and confidence to society.

Insafe is the UK’s leading and biggest independent safe and safe engineering company and was first established by Alan Bullock. Originally based in London they moved to Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent in the early 1990’s and now offer various security products from safes to locks to access control.
Their customers include over 100 high street retailers, banks, leisure operators and financial institutions. They deliver and install safes throughout the UK, Ireland and most of Europe with their own in-house safe crews, vans, lorries and cranes. They are the supplier of safes, safe locks and safe engineer services to The Post Office.
Their range of Euro Grade (EuroGrade) safes are all tested and certified to European standards, designed to be world class using the latest materials and technology. They stock over 3000 safes for immediate delivery.

Zaun Limited is the sole remaining manufacturer of mesh fencing that manufactures the entire mesh fencing system in the UK.  Zaun makes the mesh, fencing panels, posts, clamp bars and fixings at its state-of-the-art five-acre production facility in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands.

Zaun works very closely with a long-established customer base of fencing contractors to design, manufacture and supply high quality fencing systems, increasingly often providing expertise in integrating CCTV, PID and other systems into holistic security solutions.

Zaun was founded in 1996 and remains a private company solely owned by co-founder Alastair Henman with a regional office in Dubai.  It manufactures to ISO 9001:2008 standards and is a member of the ethical supply chain initiative, Sedex.  It is also a member of the Perimeter Security Suppliers' Association (PSSA), of which Henman is a director.

“The new generation of Global Emergency Response and the only dedicated Political, Natural Disaster and Medical Evacuation provider designed to meet modern, commercial travel patterns”.

Northcott Global Solutions (NGS) was essentially established to service the insurance industry having identified an obvious gap in point of incident response. Over time, they have significantly diversified into many areas of emergency assistance and broadly speaking, there is not a great deal that they cannot support when their clients ask. To date, they are named responders on thousands of insurance policies and have many different direct client groups, including mining, financial to high net worth individuals and property who all retain their services.

NGS specialise in Emergency Evacuation, Security and Investigation, Maritime and Aviation and offer an elite choice of high-performance GPS locating solutions supported 24:7 by NGS Operators for Global Monitoring, Response and Escalation. They are successful for a number of reasons but critically, they do not hold any assets, more a huge global database of approved, trusted and vetted service providers. This allows NGS to provide a swift, efficient and secure response in a matter of hours rather than days.

Galliford Try Infrastructure Security provides full turnkey program delivery for CPNI compliant integrated security solutions, from project inception to handover and maintenance requirements on CNI assets.

Delivering multi-site security programs, our expertise in the planning, design and delivery processes, together with our CNI Security knowledge and experience, enables us to efficiently deliver fully integrated physical and electronic security programmes and portfolios of work on critical operational assets.

We have considerable experience of the full range of LPCB, SEAP and PAS68 approved products and of the testing regimes of these certification bodies, including the attack criteria and tools, etc. applied at each level. We therefore fully understand the technology, its make-up, any vulnerabilities and ultimately the suitability for the client’s installed environment.

Gallagher is a global technology supplier of integrated access control and perimeter protection, encompassing both hardware and software systems, and professional services. Gallagher’s security solutions are in use with national and local government, military, commercial, industrial, healthcare, transportation and academic organisations in more than 100 countries.

Dallmeier has at its disposal more than 30 years of experience in transmission, recording as well as picture processing technology and is an outstanding pioneer of CCTV/IP solutions worldwide. This profound knowledge is used in the development of intelligent software and high quality recorder and camera technologies enabling Dallmeier to not only offer stand-alone systems, but complete network solutions up to large-scale projects with perfectly integrated components. The introduction of the patented multifocal sensor system Panomera® has had a ground-breaking effect, ushering in a new era for the industry. This unique camera technology is revolutionising the market and opening up completely new possibilities for securing assets, optimising business operations and ensuring public safety.
