SoloProtect Partner with Sheffield Working Women's Opportunities Project
06 Mar 2023
SoloProtect, a leading provider of lone worker safety solutions, is pleased to announce its partnership with Sheffield Working Women's Opportunities Project (Swwop).
Swwop is a charity providing practical and intensive support to women involved in street prostitution in Sheffield. The charity works to improve the health and wellbeing of these women, as well as to reduce their vulnerability and increase their safety. They aim to support this group of women to look after themselves and to enable them to make informed choices about their lives.
As a result of this work, Swwop has a nighttime, street-based outreach team providing invaluable support, which ranges from providing food, hot drinks and a friendly face, to more structured help with accessing benefits, tackling housing issues, drug treatment support and much more.
SoloProtect will be supplying its personal safety solution to Swwop throughout 2023, giving support to the staff and volunteers who work in the community. The personal safety solution will help ensure the safety of the Swwop employees and provide an added layer of protection as they carry out their important work.
Swwop will be utilizing the SoloProtect ID Classic solution – a user-friendly, ID shaped device, designed for discretion, which is vital in this line of work. Every SoloProtect solution is equipped with a Red Alert button for a level 1 police response, meaning it’s faster than a 999 call.
Rosie Peers, Service Manager at Swwop, commented:
"We are thrilled to be partnering with SoloProtect. Their personal safety solution is providing our staff with peace of mind when out on the streets and helps support the valuable work that they do. As well as this, the reassurance I get as manager, knowing my team has that extra layer of protection is extremely comforting."
Steve Hough, Managing Director of SoloProtect, commented:
"We are delighted to be working with such a worthwhile cause and supporting the valuable work carried out by Swwop. Protecting the safety and wellbeing of those working in vulnerable environments is at the heart of what we do, and we are proud to be able to do our part in supporting this cause."
