Charity No. 1152175
....to Nottinghamshire Search and Rescue Team! We are a newly established search and rescue team covering Nottinghamshire and are affiliated to ALSAR (Association of Lowland Search and Rescue).
Our organisation is a group of highly skilled and dedicated volunteers working alongside the Nottinghamshire Police to search for, locate and rescue missing and vulnerable people in the community.
NSART is made up of 100% volunteers who are available 365 days a year; 24 hours a day come rain or shine! The callouts we receive are to search for vulnerable missing people such as the elderly, dementia sufferers, despondents, children and anyone deemed to be at risk.
We do not get any funding from the Government, the Police or the Council. We rely entirely on donations to purchase and maintain our equipment and to offer the very best training to our team.
REQUESTS FOR EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE MUST BE MADE VIA THE POLICE - CALL 999 or 112
NSART are registered with easyfundraising.com who will give us money when you shop online.
It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for NSART instead. It's as simple as that and costs you nothing extra!
You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 2.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!
To start raising money with your online shopping just click the banner on the left of this page.
We are always looking for new people to get involved with NSART.
At the moment, we are looking for keen individuals to help our Fundraising and Suuport Team. You don't need to be fit as you won't be called out on searches; you just need enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in to help us raise the much needed funds to keep us operational.
We are not currently recruiting Operational Search Technicians, however, please keep an eye on our Facebook page for our next recruitment drive!

It is a very exciting time at the moment for NSART. To stay up to date on all our latest news and developments why not come and find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter! Links to both are at the top of the page.
There are a lot of costs involved in running a Search and Rescue Team and all our funds come from donations and grants we apply for. If you think you can help, please email [email protected] or alternatively click the image on the right to donate now!
