Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR has always been of great importance to Reliance Protect and has been a key driver of our strategy and business model since well before it became a marketing buzzword.

Today we continue to focus on environmental issues, work to give back into the community, and support several charities, as well as empowering and supporting our staff in their own charitable endeavours.

Blue Lamp Foundation - Charity of the Year

The charity was founded in 2010 by PC David Rathband after suffering life changing injuries from being shot at close range by Raoul Moat. The Blue Lamp Foundation helps those from the emergency services who have been injured, physically or emotionally, in the line of duty by providing funding and support towards, treatment, rehabilitation and out of pocket expenses.

Given Reliance High-Tech’s close relationships to a number of police forces and the NHS, this is a perfect fit for our charity of the year. We are looking forward to giving something back to such a worthwhile cause and the brave men and women of the emergency services who sacrifice so much for us.

The Security Benevolent Fund

Administered by the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals, the Security Benevolent Fund (SBF) exists to assist members of the security profession who are distressed and in need of welfare support.

Aiming to assist those who have fallen on hard times, SBF funds medical care and support to help them back into normal work.

Reliance recently worked with the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals at an event to raise funds and awareness for the SBF.

Apprenticeships

Reliance has run an apprenticeship programme for several years, taking individuals new to engineering through to full competence. Running over a two-year period, our programme combines on-the-job learning with formal training at specialist colleges. During 2019 we have three apprentice Security Engineers working at various Reliance sites across the country.

Our commitment to the apprenticeship model rests in part on the excellent experience we have had with our apprentices – they have contributed significantly to our success over the years. The programme also helps us, in a market short of skilled individuals, to nurture and develop the talents and skills we need. Additionally, we have a desire to support and prosper the community – our apprenticeship programme is one of the ways in which we do that.

Environmental

Reliance takes environmental issues seriously, as evidenced by our environmental management system, fully audited under the ISO14001 NSI EMS Gold Scheme.

We have reduced our carbon footprint by over 5% in the last year, our water consumption by more than 6% and our electricity consumption by 3% over the same period. Our paper usage is down by 20% over the last five years.

We measure our environmental impact monthly across our fleet of vehicles and all our sites and have recently scored 100% in every category in our Achilles Health and Safety, environmental, quality and CSR audit.
