Kingdom looking to support former Carillion workers

Kingdom has provided services to a number of Carillion contracts over recent years, and therefore we are very sorry and deeply saddened to have witnessed the recent collapse of the company.

We are, of course, also extremely concerned about the risk to thousands of jobs and the uncertainty this has meant to many families up and down the country.

If possible, we want to help former Carillion workers where we can. If you have been affected by the liquidation of the company on Monday 15th January and have worked there in either security, facilities management (FM) or business development, then we want to hear from you.

Kingdom hosts meeting of new student security scheme

Kingdom was very pleased recently to host a high-profile peer and a meeting of a new “gold standard” student security accreditation scheme at our London offices. The meeting of ProtectEd saw Baroness Ruth Henig (front row, second from the left in the photo above) appointed as their new patron The photo above includes members of the ProtectEd team and the SIA’s Director of Partnerships and Interventions Dave Humphries.

ProtectED is the first national accreditation scheme for student safety, security and wellbeing at UK universities. The scheme launched in 2017, after three years of research and development by University of Salford academics, services staff, and security consultants K7 Compliance.

It was founded on the understanding that universities play a critical role in student safety, security and wellbeing that does not end at campus boundaries but takes in the wider ‘student experience’. Current practice in this critical area varies around the UK, and the sector lacks a cohesive evidence base from which to better understand the problems students face, and how to address them.
