VISAV is based at the Sherwood Business Centre, which is centrally located  in Sherwood, a vibrant suberb within the city of Nottingham. But the Sherwood Business Centre is not just a suite of offices. They embrace Sherwood and Nottingham and support deserving community projects.

Take a look at some recent examples:

VISAV Ltd were proud to support the Safer Cambridgeshire Policing Awards held on Friday 5 November. 

Sarah Cooper, Head of Cambridgeshire Police Corporate Communications told us, “It was our fourth awards ceremony to recognise officers and staff for the work they do day in and day out, to keep the people of Cambridgeshire safe - and we believe it was a great success! 

It was down your company's generosity, along with our other sponsors, in donating a prize to the event, that made the event as good as it was and enabled us to recognise the officers, staff and volunteers who attended the ceremony, in such a brilliant way.

After hearing about the devastating news about damage created by a thunderstorm to the building of Coventry Citizens Advice, VISAV offered to help with the repairs to the building.  Kate Algate, CEO said 'it was so stressful seeing water literally coming down from the ceilings and questioning how we were going to repair it. As a local charity, we struggle to secure funding for such events and it was a relief when VISAV said they would support us, especially at such a busy time when demand for our services are so high.'

The shareholders, Board of Directors and Employees at VISAV have a keen interest in helping our clients to keep people safe.  We do this every day by providing, developing and supporting over 10,000 Police, Fire & Rescue, Local authority, PCC and Volunteer administrators to connect with members registered on the Neighbourhood Alert system.

But beyond that we all take great pride in the social value projects we continue to support.  Over the years this has included:

  • COPS (Care of Police Survivors)
  • Community Garden project at St. Paulinus, New Ollerton, Nottinghamshire
  • Supporting vulnerable burglary victims by supplying and installing (free of charge) Ring doorbells for their peace of mind
  • Sherwood Sunset Calendar - proceeds distributed to local charities
  • Sherwood Food Exchange - at the start of lockdown one
  • Mesopotamia

From earlier articles you will see the huge and valued support that the VISAV team have been giving a Basford, Nottingham charity, Mesopotamia. The VISAV owners and Directors visited Mesopotamia last Saturday to help with the packing and wrapping of surprise gifts for local children who, otherwise, would not have a gift to open on Christmas Day. The VISAV team will then help the Mesopotamia team to deliver the presents on Wednesday, along with the families’ food parcels that VISAV have financially contributed towards.

Rachel Jackson, with the practical and financial support of Mike Douglas, VISAV's Product Director and Nottinghamshire Freemason, set up a food exchange in Sherwood during March, at the start of the panic buying because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rachel explained on the project's Facebook page, "We are a local exchange for local people! We are here to accept food donations or household items, and here for people to access food and household items they require. We are a non profit organization and rely upon your donations and good will!"

Richard Anthony Johnson has set up a Facebook page to promote and collate a year's worth of sunset photos taken in Sherwood, Nottingham between July 2019 to June 2020. The selected photos will be used for a 2021 Charity Calendar with the proceeds going to a local Charity or Charities. Mike Douglas, VISAV Ltd, said of the project, "We are delighted to be sponsoring this superb initiative by Sherwood resident and artist Richard Johnson. Take those superb Sherwood Sunset shots and post them in, lets show how beautiful our area is."

Amazon Ring donated several of their video doorbells to VISAV to enable us to help vulnerable residents in our community. Recently we passed three of these to local PCSO Nathan Duffus who distributed the first during a burglary revisit and the following two following an incident on Waldeck Road.

PCSO Duffus told us about one of the recipients:

"One of the resident has mentioned the following on the device - ‘I was shook up after my property was broken into as I felt like my personal space was invaded. This left me overthinking on why I was a target for the first time. Then I had a visit from the local officer, which enabled me to feel reassured and a lot more relaxed about the incident. As it was explained, these things can be a bad luck of the draw for opportunist on the prowl.
