Our Parent Company Listed in 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain Report

18 May 2018

Guardian24’s parent company, Send For Help has been listed in the London Stock Exchange Group’s “1000 Companies to Inspire Britain” report, which showcases the country’s most dynamic and inspiring businesses.

In its fifth year, the report which is supported by Theresa May is a celebration of some of the fastest growing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK.

The Epsom-based tech firm was selected after outperforming peers in its sector, demonstrating sustained revenue growth of 254% between 2013-16, with its annual turnover reaching £8m.

Founded in 2010 by brothers James and Will Murray, Send For Help is the world’s largest lone worker protection provider.

Operating through its subsidiary brands Skyguard, Peoplesafe and Guardian24, Send For Help supplies key fob sized GPS personal safety alarms and mobile phone apps offering 24/7 protection to over 150,000 lone workers and people who are at risk.

Its client roster spans both public and private sectors – with over 160 NHS Trusts, major high street retailers, City banks, estate agents, the police and more than 150 local authorities all using the company’s services.

Inclusion in the report marks yet another incredible achievement for Send For Help, in what has been an outstanding 12 months for the company – ranking in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 for the second year running and recently featuring in The Financial Times FT1000 list as one of Europe’s fastest growing businesses.

Chief Executive James Murray commented, “We are honoured to be recognised as one of the UK’s most inspirational companies and feature alongside some of the UK’s brightest and best SMEs.”

“The past year has been truly remarkable for Send For Help as the Group goes from strength to strength and continues its rapid growth. It’s a fantastic time for the business, with a number of exciting developments to come as we look to build on our successes over the next 12 months.”
