In the mid 90s Linda Krawecke was bit by the music festival bug and knew she wanted to use her event management background to work with outdoor events.
To this end she began reading and researching the recently published Purple Guide and knew that the role of Health & Safety would be important in the future of the industry. After much studying and volunteering, she set up her own event health & safety business, Tiger Tea. The company thrived and grew but there also grew an awareness of a lack of child and youth welfare at the events where she worked. To remedy this she began a new branch of her company, Tiger Tea Kids – shortened to TTK, to look after young people who got themselves in trouble at events. She soon realised there was need to look after everyone needing help – not just the youngsters and so TTK Welfare was born. Today Linda still takes on Safety Management at a number of well known outdoor events and TTK Welfare now supports people of all ages who find themselves distressed or in need of help while at an event. In 2019 so far, TTK Welfare was present at thirty different events helping with everything from lost property and customer information to youth safeguarding, drug & alcohol abuse support, sexual abuse support and mental health support.
