We are a voluntary organisation and rely solely on the generosity and support of public donations.

Congratulations to the twelve Lake District teams on receiving the Queens Award for Voluntary Service!

The Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association

The Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association is the umbrella body for mountain rescue teams in Cumbria (UK).

We are a registered charity, funded solely by voluntary contributions - our 12 member teams cover the entire Lake District National Park and Cumbria region.

The teams are autonomous, but LDSAMRA coordinates the development of operational matters such as radio communications, insurance and medical training, as well as wider coordination on larger incidents. It also distributes to the teams any donations or legacies received and makes special allowances for major projects such as building extensions.

Take a look at our Facebook newsfeed for more information and updates at the bottom of this page. Like or follow us to keep upto date.
