At Safer Edge we are passionate about enabling people, organisations and institutions to achieve their purpose whilst working and travelling in difficult environments. Our aim is to support your organisation in addressing safety and security needs to reduce the risks faced and comply with legal requirements. We believe in taking a pro-active approach to managing risk, ensuring people are well prepared, and have access to specialist advice and services when required. We tailor our support to integrate with your existing ways of working and to compliment your organisational structure and culture. This not only enables, rather than inhibits, your work, but allows you to better capitalise on new opportunities.
Originally formed in 2003 we go where our clients work to join them in implementing projects, programmes and research that is as safe as they can be. We can make your work safer.
Safer Edge works on the principle of Inclusive Security – using a combination of approaches to ensure the safety and security of everyone operating in difficult environments whilst still enabling projecys and operations to work as effectively as possible.
We employ professional, field experienced practitioners who understand through their own experiences, how to operate in humanitarian, development, civil society and research programmes.
Our staff have chosen to share their working lives with these kinds of organisations, supporting them, and gaining professional satisfaction from working with them.
We are committed to the development of our trainers and consultants and we adhere to the Code of Best Practice, People in Aid (2003).
Safer Edge works in partnership with Terra Firma Risk Management – professional risk advisers supporting organisations and families before, during and after a kidnapping or other similar crisis event.
In Yemen, we work in partnership with Safer Yemen Security Services.
