Dave Perkins and Pete Roberts have been involved in Search and Rescue as members of the Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team since the early 1970s.
They formed The Centre for Search Research in 1997 to enable them to pursue their interest in topics and techniques relating to searching and search management. The company became a UK registered charity in the same year.
Carl Hamilton, a member of the Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team (NNPMRT) since 1985, joined the company in 2012.
Dave, Pete and Carl are all former Team Leaders of NNPMRT and have many years experience of incident and search management and the co-ordination and management of multi agency response to such incidents.
The Centre for Search Research is organised and run by a management group of trustees. Please see below for further information.
