We at The Air Ambulance Service are a non-government funded charity that flies two local air ambulances, across the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire (WNAA) and Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland (DLRAA)

WNAA was launched in 2003 followed by DLRAA in 2008 expanding our services to fly patients over 5 counties. Our two helicopters provide a rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies over an area of 3850 square miles covering many of the UK’s major road networks including the M1, M6, M69 and M42.

With an average response of just 13 minutes, between them, our aircrafts attend on average 6 missions a day between the hours of 7am – 5pm. Our Critical Care Cars then work throughout the night attending medical emergencies that occur within these regions creating a service that operates 24/7, 365 days a year.

If you’re local, you may well have seen us in the skies above you. What many people don’t realise when seeing our air ambulances or visiting our shops is that we’re a non-government funded charity, so we’re only able to continue with our services because of generous donations.

Luckily, we’ve made it easy with some ideas on how you can help support us;

Fundraising: There are so many ways to fundraise, whether it’s through cake sales, swap shops or even the marathons. Any donations raised, no matter how big or small means we can keep our services going. Find out more about the fundraising opportunities here.

From quality homeware to pre-loved clothes, when you purchase from us you’re supporting our services as well as getting something in return.

Volunteer: We wouldn’t be where we are today without the dedication and time given by our incredible volunteers. Giving time to help raise awareness of our charity is something that we always need. Whether it’s some of your time weekly or once a month, whatever you can give can make the world of difference to what we do here at The Air Ambulance Service.
