In an ever-changing world, the risks faced by NGOs and charities are constantly evolving too. The contextual risks of operating in regions of conflict or natural disaster and the threats of targeted attacks and terrorism are increasingly unpredictable.
Recent legal cases have emphasised duty-of-care that NGOs have for those working for their cause, and this responsibility extends not just to safeguarding employees and volunteers travelling overseas, but also to local and national staff in countries of operation.
We understand the complex environments and unique set of challenges facing NGOs and charities.
From risk assessments, risk mitigation advice and implementation, to the provision of a response and assistance capability through our world-leading risk management app, Sphere, and our 24/7 Global Response Centre, we can tailor our services to your requirements:
- Pre-travel Training and Briefings
- Threat and Risk Assessments
- In-country Security including Journey Management Services
- Tracking and Monitoring
- 24/7 Global Response Centre
My organisation greatly benefited from the support of Securewest during a potentially hazardous deployment of several staff to Nigeria. The pre-planning and risk assessment were excellent, and once in-country the contribution of the local service provider, especially a dedicated driver and vehicle, ensured a safe and successful outcome.
