A Stewarding Officer ensures that everyone who attends an event is safe. Stewarding can be arranged for a festival, a sports event, a concert or any type of indoor or outdoor gathering which is expected to attract a big crowd.
They protect the crowd and ensure that they are in the right areas. They are also there to pick up on any potential risks, issues or threats that could occur during the event.
Whilst some security services are good to have, Stewarding is necessary. You cannot run an event without having people on hand to direct, guide and protect the crowd.
Stewarding is a visible presence that acts as a visual deterrent to those present. They are often dressed in specific clothes or bright colours to ensure that they are visible to members of the crowd who may have issues or have seen something that is concerning to them.
In this day and age, when security is a concern for many people, having Stewarding at your event can really help people to feel safe and secure whilst they are there.
