SAFER WALKING IN NEW ZEALAND
Safer Walking and WanderSearch
The Safer Walking Framework is an overaching way of thinking about reducing the number of incidents of people with cognitive impairments going missing. It supports people having a healthy active life in their communities. WanderSearch is one tool to support people.
We acknowledge the vision and work undertaken by the WanderSearch New Zealand Charitable Trust, in setting up the original WanderSearch New Zealand website.
Our sincere gratitude to Allan Pritchard former Trustee of Wandersearch Canterbury Charitable Trust for the website design and development of this site.
