Safer Walking (Wander) Partnership Framework (March 2013) 

The purpose of developing this ‘Safer Walking’ strategy is to enhance connectivity and awareness of the ‘safer walking’ (known by SAR agencies as ‘wander’) sector in order to achieve greater alignment and coordination in the support and provision of services for people with cognitive impairment who potentially and actually get lost or go missing.
