  • Saving lives

    Wiltshire Search and Rescue exists to find vulnerable and missing people.  We are a voluntary specialist search team made up of 70+ members who respond across Wiltshire and surrounding areas.
  • Anytime

    We are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are trained to operate across all types of terrain from the most remote areas of Salisbury Plain through to urban centres and around water.
  • Local team

    Based locally, our volunteers are trained to the UK Lowland Rescue National Standards and fulfil the same role as Mountain Rescue, Coastguard Rescue and the RNLI.  We work closely with all the emergency services in Wiltshire and support our neighbouring Search and Rescue teams.
  • Professionals

    We are trained in search and casualty care along with a range of further skills and are called in when the emergency services need our specialist assistance.

Wiltshire Search & Rescue

We are a non-profit making organisation and rely on our own fundraising, along with donations, grants and sponsorship from the public and companies. We receive no regular statutory funding, and are a registered charity. All of our members are unpaid volunteers and we make no charge for our services.

There are many ways you can help by making a donation, helping us raise funds or joining us as an operational volunteer
