Sussex Search & Rescue (SusSAR)
primary volunteer resource used by Sussex
Police to search for, and rescue, vulnerable
missing people. We are on call 24 hours every
day throughout the year.
As a 100% volunteer organisation our
members give their time free of charge and
expect nothing in return but satisfaction from a job well done.
We exist to serve the community of Sussex through the goodwill of our members and charitable donations.
We can be called out by Sussex Police or by Search & Rescue Teams in other counties requesting our assistance at any time.
Our efforts were recently recognised by the
Sussex Police Chief Constable, Giles York,
who presented us with a special award in
recognition of "assistance to Sussex Police
and the community in searching for
vulnerable missing persons".

At Raystede we believe that every animal deserves to live a happy life free from cruelty and suffering.
We rescue, rehome and provide sanctuary to more than 2000 animals each year.
A pioneering lady with a deep compassion for all animals, who couldn't tolerate animal cruelty,
she left the education sector in order to set up an animal rescue centre and sanctuary in Sussex.
In 1952 Miss Raymonde-Hawkins established Raystede as an animal charity and made a pledge
to provide facilities that were equal to or better than existing animal rescue centres.
In the early days the charity was based in her cottage and back garden.
Although Miss Raymond-Hawkins was a hero in her own right, she was also able to attract a group of friends .
These were people who cared about animals just as much as she did.
Together they promised to stand up against the perpetrators of animal cruelty and to fight for the animals who could not fight for themselves.
