Today, we want to discuss the Protective Scheme for Places of Worship introduced by the UK government in 2019, and share our unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety of people from all ethnic groups, cultures, and religions.

The Protective Scheme for Places of Worship is a significant step towards ensuring the security and safety of places of worship across the nation. This initiative enables places of worship to apply for funding to implement physical security measures. As a security provider with a deep commitment to safety and diversity, we wholeheartedly support this initiative.

Places of worship hold great significance within communities, providing a safe place for people to come together and worship. They are sacred spaces where individuals should feel secure and at peace. Unfortunately, in light of recent events, it's crucial now more than ever to prioritise the security of places of worship, ensuring that individuals of all faiths can practice their beliefs without fear.

At Carter Security, we understand the profound impact security measures can have on the safety and well-being of worshippers. Our commitment to ensuring the safety of places of worship extends beyond providing security services. We believe in being proactive and taking steps to prevent security threats from occurring.

We have worked closely with local governments and communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, understanding the importance of a security presence that is not only professional but also compassionate during challenging times. We recognise the unique sensitivities surrounding places of worship, and we approach security with the utmost respect for cultural and religious diversity.
