Re-imagining security support
EnglishFrenchSpanishArabic

We support aid and development agencies, civil society organisations, donors, and others to safely and securely access people in need, to deliver high quality programmes, and to deliver on their duty of care to staff.

HOW WE CAN SUPPORT YOU

Keeping aid workers safe and secure

We support the delivery of humanitarian, development, and other civil society programmes by helping organisations manage their risks and keep their staff safe. 

Our range of security management and crisis management services suit every requirement – from online courses to bespoke consultancy. And we work with both national and international organisations. Take a look at what we offer, then talk to us about what we can do to help you. 

“Over the last 5 years you have delivered fantastic security management and crisis management trainings for our Security
Risk Management Advisors and Country Directors. Your trainer is an outstanding subject matter expert with huge experience.”

Security Training Co-ordinator at GIZ’s Corporate Academy

Online training courses

For online security training to be outstanding, learners must feel engaged and connected. Crucial Safety online learning – whether public or private – enables just that. Our digital tools allow learners to experience top quality online training without giving up that crucial feeling of connection.

Classroom-centred training

Exceptional classroom-centred security training is dynamic, compelling and effective. At Crucial Safety we use high-impact training approaches proven by academic research to be the most effective. Experience blended learning, spaced learning, simulated exercises and real-life examples first-hand.

Consultancy

Crucial Safety delivers high quality consultancy work. We have trusted and long-standing relationships with many organisations, who we support with security and crisis management advice at HQ, regional and field levels. We can help with risk assessments, travel safety audits, crisis management documentation and more.

Mentoring

Many security professionals new to the job are expected to carry out their role with little training, support or advice. To ease this transition, we offer a highly specialised, bespoke mentoring service offering a supportive relationship between an experienced and knowledgeable Crucial Safety mentor and your security staff.

“Since 2016 you have led over 160 members of our HQ and country leadership teams through full-day, bespoke desk-top crisis management scenarios. The approach could not be better
and challenges even our most experienced team members. It’s a great use of our valuable time, made worthwhile by the excellent standard of facilitation.”

Senior Director of Global Security, Mercy Corps

PROVIDING OUTSTANDING TRAINING

We've been there and done it. Now we train on it.

The trainers at Crucial Safety make a massive difference to the value our students take from their training. What better than to have a trainer who has been in similar situations to you and fully understands your challenges? Or who has worked for similar organisations? Our trainers know from experience exactly how important our courses are to front line workers and we do our utmost to provide great quality and affordable security training to anyone who needs it, using the best possible training techniques.
