First-ever personal emergency service for British travellers launched

Skyguard International creates instant back-up across 36 countries

From today, Skyguard launches the first-ever personal emergency service for British travellers and lone workers abroad.

Skyguard International gives travellers the power to summon help at the press of a button if they find themselves in trouble overseas. Initially the service is live across 34 European countries, the Russian Federation and South Africa.

The launch comes hot on the heels of the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s British Behaviour Abroad report, which revealed 19,228 Brits have needed assistance overseas during the past 12 months, with Spain producing the most incidents.

Travellers can activate the emergency Skyguard International service using the MySOS personal safety device. The MySOS is the smallest GPS alarm of its kind in the UK, and can be discreetly attached to keys, a belt or worn on a lanyard. Skyguard

Personal alarms for lone workers in ID Badge Holder

Skyguard Launches Identity Badge Holder for Personal Safety Device

Skyguard are pleased to announce the official launch of the latest accessory for the MySOS personal safety device – an identity badge holder.

The MySOS unit perfectly slots into the back of the identity badge holder, giving the user even more choice and flexibility in how to discretely carry 24/7 personal protection from Skyguard.

Weighing only 59 grams fully fitted with the device, the identity badge holder is lighter than the leading competitor. Coupled with the fact that the MySOS unit is the UK’s smallest safety device, it’s the perfect solution for any lone workers who wear an identity badge.

The accessory has already been well received amongst users and trials within the NHS have all been positive.

The badge holder is just one way of carrying the MySOS. The unit is small enough to carried on its own, attached to a

Skyguard Supports Scottish Soroptimist Fundraising Event

To mark the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, Scottish Soroptimists launched the Tartan Ribbon Fund at Airth Castle, Falkirk on 20th March.

The fundraising lunch was organised by Soroptimists Brenda Kay and Janice Wilson, to increase awareness of violence against women and raise funds for Scottish Police Forces, to enable them to buy Skyguard personal safety alarms for women at risk from abuse.

Guest speakers at event included Rhoda Grant MSP, who introduced the Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Bill at Holyrood; Assistant Chief Constable Angela Wilson from Tayside Police; and Patrick Dealtry, co-founder of Skyguard Ltd.

Asst Chief Constable Angela Wilson told the audience that most incidents of domestic abuse still go unreported and of those that are reported the victims often experience up to 37 assaults before turning to the authorities. She said, “Many of the incidents of abuse result in the most appalling acts of violence….Most distressingly of all is the fact that in most of these domestic incidents children often witness or are victims of the abuse
