Safe Secure Supported

Theft and robbery against retailers have reached record levels, rising by 24% in the past year, with shop owners and staff across the country facing over 850 incidents of abuse and violence a day. This is not acceptable. We propose the government establishes grants of up to £1,500 to help small businesses improve their security measures.

Yellow words appear against a black background saying safe, secure, supported. Next sentence has the words back government security grants for small shops. In a yellow box, black words says sign our petition.

Theft and robbery against retailers have reached record levels, rising by 24% in the past year, with shop owners and staff across the country facing over 850 incidents of abuse and violence a day.

This is not acceptable. 

On average, it costs over £4,500 to install security measures such as CCTV, panic buttons and security alarms in a store. Independent retailers struggle to pay this due to being hard-pressed financially with rising costs and reduced margins.

This is why we call the Home Office to provide security grants up to £1,500 to help small retailers improve their security measures. 

Please support our call for government grants to improve security in your local shops which can lead to lower crime rates in your community.
