Who are the SPSC?

 

The SPSC is a non-profit organisation that has been set up to improve, support and up-skill the current security industry. Our leadership team have worked in the security industry for over 30 years and have seen first hand the decline, lack of support and ever growing divide between security operatives, law enforcement and the general public.

We know that security operatives have an extremely hard job to protect ourselves and our families, not just on nights out and events, but throughout everyday life with the ever increasing concern of terror threats shown through all forms of media. This is the fundamental reason why the SPSC was formed as security affects us all.

As well as offering training courses to up-skill all our members, many of which are funded, we also set out to help protect our members by offering optional unique, bespoke packages through our carefully selected support networks, including; income protection and life insurance, accountancy and tax services, legal defence insurance and more.

Legal Defence Insurance

In the past if you were falsely accused of a crime then the person who accused you would have to pay your legal costs. However, since October 2012 this age-old system was changed and now even if you win your case you effectively lose as you must pay your own legal costs, which depending on the severity of the accusation could run into thousands of pounds.

Individuals working in security are constantly placed in a highly charged situation which sometime escalates into verbal and physical confrontations. This can then lead to false accusations made against the security person. To retain their licence security personnel, have no choice other than to defend themselves in through the courts to prove their innocence.

For £10 per month, My Defence ensure that you have access to the support of their solicitors and their team of legal professionals who understand the work you do and your need for only the highest standard of support.

Pension Services

It is said that less than 25% of people are likely to have adequate pension arrangements. For that reason, the SPSC have teamed up with Smart Pension, who are a well established provider in the UK pension space, trusted by over 500,000 members and 90,000 employers. 

The main goal of both parties is to ensure that SPSC members have the opportunity to achieve better retirement outcomes.
