We support International Women’s Day 2019 #BalanceforBetter a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world. Central Beacons is 1 of 5 teams in Mountain rescue England and Wales to have a female Team Leader.

Central Beacons recognise our Team is stronger when it has balance – both internally and in the service we provide. We know that women’s roles can be limited by a public perception and in Central Beacons we celebrate the real positive difference they make in our team. Whether female or male everyone in Central Beacons is united by the common aim of providing a search and rescue service to our community and our female team members bring their special qualities and skills to our SAR community. With this we are pleased to welcome our female members who have joined us in 2019.
