Story

Recently, Securitas’ charity single ‘Ascending’ raised over £15,000 to help the hungry and homeless in Birmingham. Feeling impelled to do more, we are proud to be working closely with Calderwood House, a homeless hostel in Cumbria which gives its residents a safe place to live and a 12-week recovery programme to help them build a new future.

We were inspired by Calderwood House’s mission to help the homeless get back on their feet and by the priority they give to helping ex-service men and women. With several ex-military in our own company, we have some insight into the physical, mental, and financial impact of leaving the forces, and we also know how much these individuals have to offer. The aims of Calderwood House also echo two important Securitas values—integrity and helpfulness.

We are calling on local communities and businesses in Cumbria, and across the UK, to listen to Ascending, Securitas’ charity single.

We hope you'll love listening to our song for the homeless whilst helping us raise much needed funds to provide shelter and food to those much less fortunate. Please make a donation today to support the fantastic work of the team at Calderwood House.

In the summer of 2021, we hosted Securitas has got talent a fun, talent competition for everyone working in Securitas UK. We were amazed by the response - there were so many wonderful entries and we discovered so much hidden talent! After the finale, our Country President, Shaun Kennedy, came up with a brilliant idea to record a song to help the homeless, and with the help of our talented musicians, Ascending, our Securitas song for the homeless, was born!
