About this cause
We run alongside both Lowland Rescue and Mountain Rescue and we are focused on the London area covered by the Metropolitan Police. We support the police with our specialist skills of navigation, medics and knowledge of how people who go missing may think. We are tasked by the police to assist when looking for high risk people, including dementia, Alzheimer's, despondent/suicidal people and children.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Wellbeing has been our main focus within London over the last few months. Most recently we have spent five days on behalf of London Borough of Southwark visiting more than 500 residents who were shielding or self isolating, making sure they were ok and seeing if they needed anything. A rewarding few days for all of us involved.
