Business Description

"Through its subsidiary companies, the Send For Help group is the largest lone worker protection provider in the UK, Europe and globally.

Send For Help is an award-winning company using pioneering key fob sized GPS personal safety alarms and apps to provide 24/7 personal protection to more than 100,000 lone workers and people who are at risk.

Founded in 2010, it operates through its two subsidiary brands — SKYGUARD and GUARDIAn24 — making it the largest lone worker protection provider in the world.

Send For Help offers a wide range of state of the art, exclusively designed personal alarms and mobile applications. Central to these is a discreet, key fob sized personal safety device which features an ‘SOS alarm function’ – meaning a call for help can be requested at the touch of a button. The device includes the latest GPS, GPRS and ‘man-down’ technology.

The device and app link into Send For Help’s purpose-built, fully accredited ‘Alarm Receiving Centre’ (ARC) at the company’s headquarters in Epsom Surrey, which is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year — ensuring lone workers can call for assistance at any time.

Send For Help primarily operates in the UK and Ireland, serving more than 100 NHS Trusts, 150 local authorities, 200 housing associations, and hundreds of commercial organisations, ranging from British Gas to TalkTalk, Dairy Crest to Weetabix.

The company also works with over half of the UK’s police forces helping to protect domestic abuse victims, and has secured the highest industry security accreditations, establishing its reputation as the premier company in lone worker protection.

Send For Help is a family owned business. Brothers James Murray, CEO, and Will Murray, Marketing Director, founded the business after spotting a gap in the market to provide lone worker protection using pioneering technology.

Their father Jan Murray — the City veteran and former PC WORLD and INTERNET TECHNOLOGY GROUP founder —provided initial funding and is President of Send For Help."

In December 2016, Send For Help was announced as one of Britain’s fastest growing companies. The company ranks at no. 47 in the 2016 Fast Track 100 league table, ranking Britain’s top 100 private companies with the fastest growing sales over their latest three years.
