This is where it all started for Safe Only Ltd. - with us and our friends face to face with yet another disinterested, rude, frankly aggressive security guard who absolutely didn't 'get it', and had no stake in the basic enjoyment or safety of our community.
We've been misgendered too many times to count, we've been assaulted during unlawful searches, we've been gaslit, we've been criminalized, pathologized, ostracized, alienated....
We've had enough!
We are no longer willing to accept venues and parties that consider security only as an afterthought, if they consider it at all.
So we're here to provide a team of highly trained, exclusively queer, SIA licenced security personnel who know the party because it's their space too. We're talking trauma informed, consent led, harm reduction centred beings. We're dreaming big, baby!
Booking and Prices
Security workers are often on shockingly low wages, and we're having absolutely none of it. We can't dismantle capitalism overnight, but we can demand a fair wage for skilled, specialist workers while we bring on the revolution ;)
To that end, all of our security staff are paid £15 per hour - the real real living wage*!
So - our rate to you works on a sliding scale to suit your budget. We start at a 20% overhead on the hourly wage, and go up to infinity% for you big spenders (i.e. starting at £18ph, going up to £....). Most parties come in at around £22ph per worker. We'll talk through what's doable during the early collaboration process :) Our main priority is supporting you to shape your party with the love and care it deserves, and we welcome sensitive conversations about dollars and cents.
We are open for bookings right now, so if you're looking to shake up your door, drop us a message with a little idea about your event, security expectations, and any questions you might have!
Our cancellation policy: You can cancel up to 72 hours ahead of a shift with no fee. Within 72 hours, we may ask for 25% of the charge, within 48 hours we may as for 50%, and on the day cancellations may require you to pay the full booking fee.
