About Us

We work with security, safeguarding and risk advisory professionals with a wide range of expertise, skills and experience. All of our team and consultants have experience working internationally in the humanitarian and development contexts in a range of risk contexts. Our in-house team speaks English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and Russian.

Being experts in our fields helps us bring learning and engagement alive as we introduce real-life scenarios which could be faced. Our facilitators and consultants are continually learning and re-certifying. We adhere to the Code of Best Practice, People in Aid 2003 (now CHS Aliiance).

Our Clients

While Safer Edge works with a breadth of organisations they all have one thing in common- they are good people attempting great things in difficult places. This includes everything from humanitarian and development NGOs, to academics conducting research and leading field teams, to journalists and human rights activists. We have worked with some of the world's largest foundations and trusts to small, field-based mission organisations- and everything inbetween.
