We owe our origins to a community initiative programme of Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, which ran several highly successful pilot schemes during 2010.
Following this earlier success we commenced full operations in February 2011, funded still by Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service as well as via a number of local Authority community action grants.
We currently operate as a charitable (membership) association with our own Board of Trustees in full control of our operations.
Over the next few years we have the stated aim of expanding out from our exclusively Hertfordshire base, eventually operating on a national basis.
On 9 April 2015 we gained full registered charity status.
