Team Charitable Work – Kent Search and Rescue

This month we want to celebrate the amazing work of our Project Manager, Rosy Philpott, as a Search Technician with Kent Search and Rescue. As well as searching for vulnerable missing people, their team provide other support when needed. During July’s heatwave, Rosy and the team helped to distribute water to vulnerable residents on the Isle of Sheppey when the water supply was compromised due to burst pipes.

“It’s an amazing team and a fantastic cause. All its members are entirely voluntary and train continuously throughout the year to ensure we all have the skills required to assist with searching for missing people. It feels amazing to be a part of something that can make such a difference to people’s lives.” – Rosy Phillpot

Kent Search and Rescue

Kent Search and Rescue

Kent Search and Rescue is a charitable organisation which works in partnership with Kent Police to search for vulnerable missing people. All its members are volunteers and are on call 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

In addition to their main search objective, they also run Operation Concern. This provides voluntary patrols to respond to lower-risk vulnerable people by attending 999/101 calls ranging from welfare concerns to mental health crises and suicide risks.

They also run the safe and dry scheme which is an initiative run by Kent Search and Rescue to help prevent drownings in the Medway at major events involving alcohol where the volunteers patrol on and off the water late into the night.
