» The History
Over the years, and across the UK there have been groups set up by volunteers owning 4x4s and offering a service to their local community. Members of these groups have used their vehicles to support the Emergency Services, Local Council Emergency Planning Departments and other volunteer organisations in times of poor weather, emergency or other times of need. Some have been active for many years, others are still forming.

In 1999 4x4 Response was first established in Norfolk to provide local community support. One of its key aims was to promote the 4x4R concept across the country. Through its website and attendance at shows, information was passed and other 4x4R specific groups were formed across the UK. In 2005 it was suggested that these links were developed into a more formal Association which could assist the development of the Volunteer 4x4 Response concept across the country. In 2006 the 4x4 Response Network was renamed Norfolk & Suffolk 4x4 Response and the simpler name was used to form a National identity.

Throughout 2006 a steering committee and several sub-committees, consisting of members from groups in Northern, Southern and Eastern England, Scotland and Wales, used the web to discuss and establish the criteria for 4x4 Response Groups across the nation.

In 2008, after considerable growth in the regions with 500 members involved in their local teams the National organisation was formalised and established as an umbrella charity.

Charity Status
As the organisation has become more formalised over the years, so the underlying structure has evolved. In the Autumn of 2008, 4x4 Response became a registered charity (Charity number: 1126138), acknowledging the voluntary and charitable work done by the organisation.
