Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT), is a registered charity providing an essential, life-saving emergency service to the people of the Calder Valley and beyond.
The Team attends an average of 65+ callouts each year and is staffed entirely by over 50 unpaid volunteers. It costs around £35,000 a year to keep the team operational, all of which is raised through donations - we receive no direct government funding.
