As a values-led security services provider, we are passionate about people and the communities we serve. We understand the true meaning of social value and build it into all of our solutions.


Social value represents a broader understanding of value and moves beyond using money as the main indicator of value. It puts the emphasis on engaging people to understand the impact of decisions on their lives and the impacts for wider stakeholders and communities. It is not about one-off charity efforts, it is about creating a considered and sustainable business framework to make sure every decision is considered in relation to its people, stakeholders, and the wider communities we serve.

At Professional Security, we foster this belief as part of our DNA and are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of our workforce and the communities where we operate.


Martin House was nominated to be our company charity partner by several members of our team and has now been our charity partner for several years.

Martin House provide family-led hospice care for children and young people with progressive life-limiting illnesses, and provides support to their families. They care for more than 420 children and young people, and over 150 bereaved families, from across West, North and East Yorkshire every year.

Their aim is to make every day count for children and young people with a shortened life expectancy and their families.


As a socially responsible organisation, we have committed to act as a force for good in the communities in which we operate. We seek to provide better futures for those in our local communities through a range of community engagement activities, with company-supported employee volunteering an important element of our plan going forward.

In 2023, we introduced our PROFESSIONAL PAYBACK initiative to our #WECARE charity umbrella, which gives all our full time employees the opportunity to utilise 1 day of their paid working time to volunteer for a charity of their choice.


As well as supporting Martin House Children’s Hospice, we want to celebrate all of the amazing things that our colleagues do for charities of their choice. 

A great example is when we recently held a clothes drive, where members of our Hub brought in their old clothes to donate to The Clothing Bank UK, a grass roots charity who collect quality clothing via their 127 banks across Yorkshire to provide for those who need it.

The donation of warm clothes this winter can really make a difference to families and individuals who are facing the harsh realities of the winter season.

If you would like to support them, we have linked their website below. 


We believe it is now more important than ever to create opportunities for young people and the security industry can provide an incredibly diverse career path with plenty of opportunities to specialise in specific areas. We believe that it is vital to better promote the industry amongst budding young professionals trying to get their first step on the ladder.

We have worked with the EY Foundation on their Secure Futures Programme for the last 2 years, which aims to provide young people from low-income backgrounds the chance to develop their skills and understanding of life in the security sector.

Secure Futures’ is a 9-month employability programme, which is completed by thirty 16-18-year-olds from low-income backgrounds that are considering a career within the security industry. Designed to make the security industry more attractive and accessible for young people, the partnership helps ensure that the industry is better equipped to tackle the ever-evolving security challenges faced across society.

We have welcomed 4 students to the business over the past 2 years, who have spent a day in The Hub learning about all of our departments, followed by a day in the field with one of our Area Managers and then have been given a task to present back to us on day three that ties in all of their learnings from the experience.
