Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Are you needing a tracking device for a loved one or resident who is wandering? WanderSearch Canterbury can help. We work with a full range of cognitive impaired conditions such as Dementia, Autism, Brain injury, etc.

Since 2010 WanderSearch Canterbury Charitable Trust has been working with the wider Canterbury community to help keep vulnerable people safe, by providing tracking devices that help to locate them quickly when needed.

WanderSearch Canterbury is a not-for-profit service. Our Tracking Device Loan Bank is available in all parts of Canterbury funded through philanthropic organisations and our delivery is by dedicated WanderSearch Canterbury volunteers.
“We have used a WandaTrak device for Kevin for the past three and half years and found it very reassuring to have, it has provided great peace of mind. The device proved to be invaluable the two times Kevin went missing and needed to be found”.
