A Devon Charity

We are a Devon charity of 50+ volunteers on call 24/7 dedicated to assisting the emergency services with the search and rescue of the lost, missing, injured and vulnerable including those with dementia, mental health illnesses and children.

Without volunteer search and rescue teams like us, the emergency services would not have the resources to devote to the search and rescue of missing or injured loved ones.

YOUR SUPPORT IS VITAL

The Dartmoor rescuers based at Ashburton rely on public support for over 92% of their income.

Without your donation, the team would cease to be operational and the emergency services would not have enough resources to search for those in need.
