The Major Incident Response Team (MIRT) offers support in the aftermath of a traumatic incident to those who have been affected by the event.
An incident may affect survivors, relatives or friends of those affected; or even those who are affected by images of the scene.
The major incident response team (MIRT) provides a 24-hour service to provide practical and emotional support in the aftermath of a traumatic event. We provide a listening ear, a friendly voice but most of all skilled and non-intrusive help when "normal" life is disrupted.
We are made up of volunteers from different backgrounds such as social care services, health and the voluntary sector.
We respond to your individual needs and the service is confidential.
We work alongside other agencies to provide a comprehensive response to the needs of those affected by any emergency situation. The links below will take you to the sites of those organisations we commonly work with on a day to day basis.
If you think you might need to talk, or even if you are not sure, then please do not hesitate to contact us. Please use the link at the bottom of the page and a member of the team will get in touch as soon as possible.
