So who are Serve On? We are a charitable organisation, group of 90 (and growing) volunteers who provide help to our local and international communities during times of crisis.
Our volunteers include many ex-category one responders from the fire, police, ambulance service and RNLI, ex military personal, mechanics, IT specialists, outdoor specialists the list goes on...
We have three main areas- International Disaster Response Team (IRT), Community Resilience Teams (CRT) and the dog rescue team.
Serve On has mobilised an International Response Team in the UK ready to deploy to the Caribbean as Hurricane Irma causes devastation in the region.
We have notified the On-Site Operations Coordination Centre (OSOCC) of our assessment and light USAR capabilities and we are in the process of sourcing flights to the region for a joint mission with Team Rubicon
Wind speeds of up to 185mph at the core of the Category 5 storm make Irma the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic, with the threat that the poorest communities will suffer the most damage to infrastructure and buildings.

We train and equip our dedicated members, emergency service and former military service personnel alongside people who benefit from a new purpose in life.
By creating multidisciplinary teams of volunteers, we deliver immediate response when and where required.

Serve On have set a grand new goal – and you can be part of it
In the last 18 months Serve On has helped communities in the UK, Nepal and Haiti. Serve On deployed to Yorkshire and Cumbria in 2016 to help flood victims and also deployed to Nepal 36 hours after the earthquake struck in 2015. More recently we deployed to Haiti after the hurricane hit to support the relief effort.
With these and many other achievements, we are delighted to announce the launch of a new development initiative, 5x5 and you can be part of it. We want to grow the Search, Rescue and Community Resilience work we do and positively impact more people than ever before.
The Serve On ‘5x5 Appeal’ aims to attract funding and support of at least £1 million. We aim to build 5 new Community Resilience Teams in the next 5 years and we aim to have the resources (people, money, equipment) necessary for up to five deployments to major disaster events in the UK and internationally each year. We are a small charity but with your help we can have a massive impact. We are mainly staffed by volunteers and our aim is to ensure as much as possible of all contributions go to delivery and not a corporate overhead.
This is your chance to get involved and there are so many ways to do it. Read more...
