Nottinghamshire Search and Rescue Team

Charity description

Nottinghamshire Search and Rescue Team logo
250,000 people are reported missing each year in the UK most will turn up fairly quickly; unfortunately many vulnerable people do not. Local Police Forces call upon the highly skilled Lowland Rescue teams, like ourselves, to help with the search using the latest tried and tested techniques for locating missing people and returning them to a place of safety.

Most of the calls will be to search for adults with dementia, children, despondent persons and individuals with mental health issues. We may also be called upon to support Lowland Rescue Teams in other counties and also may be called out in times of national crisis (eg. flooding).

We anticipate that the operational costs of the unit will be in the region of £20,000-£30,000 a year. We do not get any funding from the Government, the Police or the Council and rely entirely on donations.

NSART is made up of 100% volunteers who are available 365 days a year; 24 hours a day come rain or shine!

A message from our Ambassador

“Hi, My name is Jacqui Kirkby, mother of Colette Aram, who disappeared in Keyworth in 1983 while walking to her boyfriends home. This is why I decided I would become involved in this wonderful and very worthwhile Charity. Had something like this been available at the time of Colette's disappearance, she might have been found sooner and be here with us all today. This charity not only helps in finding young and vulnerable children but people from all walks of life who go missing from home and their loved ones. Please help us, by donating (however small!) or joining us as a volunteer. Your help would be very much appreciated, thanking you in advance and on behalf of NSART, in anticipation.

Yours very sincerely
Jacqui Kirkby (nee Aram)
NSART Ambassador”
