Brothers James and William Murray, 44 and 40, set up Send For Help in 2010 to buy the personal protection company Skyguard then acquired Guardian24 in 2015. They are backed by technology entrepreneur Jan Murray, 69, who founded PC World. The Surrey group now protects 150,000 lone workers, including community nurses and utility workers, using GPS devices that can send an alarm and open a two-way voice call to a 24-hour control centre. The firm generated sales of £7.9m this year, before buying rival Peoplesafe for £8.6m in May.
