We are a UK registered charity carrying out research and training in areas relating to searching for lost and missing persons.


We offer a number of training courses in incident management, search management and search skills; these are appropriate for statutory and civilian organisations operating in a variety of different types of terrain, from urban to wilderness.


One of our ongoing activities is the UK Missing Person Behaviour Study.


We have a body of published work that covers a range of search and SAR (Search and Rescue) related topics.
