Feeling safe, secure and supported is something we all want, both in an emotional sense and a physical sense. And for those of us in business and events, we want this for our customers and patrons, too.

    Guarded Group has a twenty-year history in security, protection, fire and medical support services, and has your back in every way.

    If you’re organising an event and need security support, go the extra step and provide an environment where people are safe and supported in all areas – traditional security as well as medical, fire and emotional support.

    And for those with medical transport needs, Guarded Group’s non-emergency patient transport is in your corner every step of the way. You’ll be kept safe and comfortable and clinically monitored from where you are to wherever you need to go.

    Dignity and care are the hallmarks of Guarded Group’s service, says Director Mark Hollis.

    “We’re genuinely passionate about providing high quality care for our clients, and their clients. They’re easy words to say, but we actually live by them. As the owner I guarantee everyone’s work and experience with us will be professional, supportive, and centred on their wellbeing.”

    Operating across Victoria with bases in West Footscray and Warrnambool, you’ll find a good partner in Guarded Group. Contact Guarded Group via: or 1300 354 490
