One of the busiest mountain rescue teams in England

2021 is our 57th year

What we do

The Team supports the emergency services by providing a rescue service for those in danger in the hills and valleys around Ullswater. We are called out by the Police, Fire and Ambulance services, and by HM Coastguard for rescues on the lake.

The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.
