Support UsOur volunteers rely on your support all year round to keep providing the level of service we are renowned for
It costs nearly £40,000 per year to run our Team of 35 volunteer members and four response vehicles. As a member of Northern Ireland Search and Rescue we are very grateful for the assistance we receive from the Department of Justice and other bodies like Northern Ireland Ambulance Service, unfortunately that assistance covers less than half of our annual costs. This is why we rely on public donations to keep us running.
There are lots of ways you can support, please use whichever service one you are familiar with, most platforms allow us to claim Gift Aid if you are a UK Taxpayer.
