We need your support

Cheshire Search and Rescue team is a registered charity, and members must spend time raising funds in addition to training and callouts. Members are all volunteers, and when they are not being called out or training, they participate in various fundraising activities such as bag packing, collections, talks and providing medical rescue cover for events. Our specialist equipment has been bought through donations from the residents and businesses of Cheshire and beyond. It costs over £50 per day to keep the team operational, and this increases during callouts. Items need replacing to stay in date or at the end of their serviceable life, and team vehicles need to be upgraded periodically. In addition to the fundraising carried out by our members, support from the general public is vital to keep the team running. If you cannot make a direct donation, please see the alternative ways you could help the team through vital fundraising activities.

People with dementia can sometimes start to wander. This might only be into the garden or street for a short time, but sometimes people get lost and go missing. Carers, family or friends of a vulnerable person, or the person themselves, can fill in a Herbert Protocol form in advance, containing information to help the police if the person goes missing. Keeping a completed form means you don’t have to try to remember the information when you are under stress if someone goes missing. And it saves time, so we can start the search sooner.

You can find out more about the Herbert Protocol on the Cheshire Police website
