Our mission is: To save life
We do this by empowering strategic decision makers working in resilience, risk, crisis and disaster response. We provide risk management services, professional training, official agency liaison and mentoring, as well as kinetic disaster reconnaissance and rescue missions where conventional resources may otherwise struggle.
Our intent is to build a world in which disasters are less frequent and less impactful, and that nations, organisations, and communities have
We work towards this by training, enabling and empowering decision makers of nation state and multinational corporations, who are responsible for the lives of thousands or millions of people. We also work in partnership across sectors, throughout the disaster cycle, and across levels of decision-making and action, in order to achieve this vision.

Rescue Global works with nations vulnerable to disasters, providing them with direct support before, during and after critical events. For the private sector we work to protect lives and increase their resilience. With the military, NGOs, the private sector and academia, we conduct joint research, training, liaison, mentoring and response operations.
Our approach spans all phases of risk, resilience, crisis and disaster management, from preparation to response, and recovery and review.
We understand that actions taken across each of these phases are linked and that activities from strategic and policy level, through operational and on the ground, must be integrated.
We work to the highest levels of governance and professionalism, holding ISO:9001 (2015) Quality and Risk Management certification, with highly competent and experienced teams drawn from diverse sectors: military, emergency services, the private sector, government agencies, academics and NGO practitioners.
With governments faced with natural disasters, we support National Disaster Management Agencies (NDMAs) with the long-term goal of increasing resilience. These activities span advising on national disaster preparedness plans, through to supporting the coordination of a national or international humanitarian response, joint training with response agencies, and audit and review following an event.

Rescue Global runs comprehensive risk management programmes for businesses. We ensure that risk policy set at the strategic level, aligns with real business and operational needs. We identify and reduce risks in operations worldwide, conducting British Standards Institute-certified audits of past events, and, if the worst happens, provide response teams in the event of a crisis or disaster. Read more about how we work with the private sector.
The NGO community, whether domestic within a disaster-prone country or international, is a critical part of disaster preparedness, response and recovery. Rescue Global works in support of the affected nation to help with the coordination of any NGO response. In addition, we conduct joint training and exercises with partner NGOs. Find out more about how we partner with the NGO community.
It is the role of academic institutions to understand trends and causal factors in past events and to develop recommendations for the future, as well as train the next generation of specialists. Rescue Global works in long-term partnerships with some of the world’s leading academic institutions to better understand disasters - the factors that cause them, and the short and long-term impacts of disaster risk management actions. Read more about our academic partnerships.
In many disaster events worldwide, domestic or foreign militaries are some of the primary and most significant response agencies. In order for response coordination to be effective when it is needed most, Rescue Global develops partnerships with militaries in disaster-prone nations. We participate in joint training and exercises, to ensure that our efforts are aligned in a real-world event. Read more about how Rescue Global works with militaries.
We proactively work across all of the sectors who work in disaster risk reduction and response: governments, the private sector, academia, NGOs and militaries. We bring these sectors together through the Crisis and Disaster Resilience Alliance (CaDRA). CaDRA is a Rescue Global initiative that fosters resilience and builds capacity by uniting and empowering dynamic organisations who work in and around any of the phases of Disaster Risk Reduction and Response (DRR&R).
