We have received very positive feedback and hope you all had an enjoyable day.


 

A Few Things We Do Cave Rescue. Surface Rescue. Animal Rescue.



UWFRA is made up of over 60 well trained and well equipped volunteer cavers, climbers and mountaineers and is on call 365 days a year. Our membership live in the Dales or travel from as far away as Leeds or Bradford and are prepared to respond to a callout at any time of the day or night in the worst of weather conditions.

UWFRA is a registered charity. Like other mountain and cave rescue teams in the UK it receives no funding from central Government. The team is run entirely by volunteers and has no paid members of staff.
