Introducing the

Cheltenham Guardians

Safeguarding Team

Strength & Integrity in Care


Working with Gloucestershire Constabulary and Cheltenham Borough Council in Cheltenham's night-time economy.

About us

We are one of the United Kingdom's most successful volunteer ENTE (Evening and Night-Time Economy) safeguarding and welfare service providers.

Since our launch in 2015 we have ensured the safety of thousands of young adults and have saved the emergency services over £1million and thousands of duty hours.

Our core mission is the India Protocol, the UK's most innovative and successful lone female safeguarding initiative. Operated in memory of India Eve Chipchase.

Full spectrum capability

Our ability to respond to a wide range of incidents and emergencies in the ENTE environment makes us a valuable asset to the community we proudly serve and an important strategic partner to the police and local authority.

We are equipped to deal with most emergencies in the night-time economy environment. From low level care to high risk interventions.

We are making

a huge difference...

We are very grateful to the Cheltenham community for its continued support. We are driven by a strong desire to keep our wonderful community and its young adults safe.
