The scheme aims to match women mentors and mentees from the  maritime Search and Rescue (SAR) sector.

It is intended for women who are already working or volunteering in maritime SAR, as well as those thinking about getting involved in the sector, the opportunity to be mentored by other women.

Mentors need to be from an IMRF Member Organisation, but Mentees do not need to be part of an IMRF Membership Organisation.

All participants must be 18 years, or over, to be eligible for this scheme.

Once you’ve been accepted to the IMRF #WomenInSAR Mentoring Scheme, we’ll match you with your mentor.

We aim to match as many applicants as possible, as quickly as possible, but we can’t guarantee that everyone will be offered a place or that a suitable mentor will be found.

Once we have received your registration form, we will be in touch.

If you have any questions on our #WomenInSAR Initiative and/or our #WomenInSAR Mentoring Scheme, please contact Caroline Jupe at
