Student Safety UK is the UK's leading company specialising on the safety and welfare of international students studying in the UK. Founded by recognised experts in the field of personal safety, Stephen Helliwell and Paul Telford struggled to find personalised welfare protocols that would suit international clients whose children were studying in the UK and required a 24/7  service that catered for their safety and well being whilst their parents were overseas. From this, the concept of Student Safety UK was born.

Stephen and Paul created bespoke care plans for their clients and their children, which in turn inspired them to offer this service for parents wanting to know their children were in safe hands and being looked after. With the creation of the company, Student Safety UK now looks after the welfare and interests of international students from all over the globe attending UK universities, schools and colleges. Now families and students can depend on Student Safety UK to watch over their safety and well being.

A global structure with a local touch

From this positive experience, Student Safety UK manage the safety of students from China, UAE, Africa, Russia, India and across the world. With our experience of being security professionals for over 30 years,  we’ve gathered best practices and expertise from our experiences as British Police Officers, and passed them onto each of our dedicated coordinators, enabling them to provide high-quality, personalised welfare packages. Each Student Safety UK coordinator benefits from high-quality training and efficient processes that enable them to focus on their students. In the UK, our coordinators provide care and protection for all the UK universities, schools and colleges, which allows them to be close to the students, and available whenever they need them. Operating in the personal safety environment, we care deeply about our clients and ensure we provide a personal, outstanding experience every time.
