Developing from a fire security company, Kent’s Red Alert Telecare was set up two-and-a-half years ago and has won contracts from London councils and others. It provides flexible services from installing equipment to maintaining customer databases and holding stock for the councils. Last week, at the Kent Invicta Chamber awards at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge, it was named Most Promising New Business.
Managing Director Clive Gawler received the HSBC-sponsored award and said he was “delighted that our efforts to help councils make life better for older and vulnerable people have been recognised in this way”. The award comprises an engraved glass trophy, a cash prize, and a year’s free membership of the Chamber.
