Our primary aim is simple:
To work in coordination with the police and other agencies to locate and recover lost or injured people from remote places in the Peak District and surrounding areas.
We also cooperate with the police in searching for missing and vulnerable people in areas other than hills and dales.
The team maintains an operational membership of around forty-five people in order to provide this service. We are always keen to hear from potential recruits.
We are a registered charity and totally dependent on donations from the public. It costs around £30,000 per annum to maintain the service which must be raised through our own efforts. There are several ways you can support us to achieve this.
