Air Ambulance Volunteering

Every year, our team of volunteers donates thousands of hours of their own time to support us. In 2023, their 224,000 volunteered hours contributed towards funding over 4,000 of our life saving missions.

Quite simply, we could not operate our services and continue to save lives without the support of our charity volunteers.

How do I start volunteering?

If you want to meet new people, support a cause you’re passionate about, or have time to spare, then join our team of volunteers today.

What is the minimum age for a volunteer?

If you are aged 16 or over and would like to volunteer, then we would love to hear from you. Please complete an online application for the area you are interested in and we will be in touch to discuss further.

Please note that volunteers under the age of 18 will need to complete a Young Person’s Risk Assessment.

Unfortunately, we are not currently able to accommodate volunteers who are under the age of 16.

What are the benefits of volunteering?

Volunteering with The Air Ambulance Service will not only support us to continue our life saving work, but also gives you a chance to provide much needed support to your community too. Benefits include: 

  • Giving back to your community
  • Opportunity to meet new people and build great relationships
  • Working as part of a team
  • Training and development opportunities
  • Building skills and workplace confidence
  • Access to charity workers discounts cards, including Blue Light Card
  • Up to 25% discount in our stores

Everyone at the store was so friendly, and made us feel very welcome. We got to help with a variety of tasks through the day which gave a good insight into how the store runs. Even though everyone was busy, they made time to make sure we were ok, and were happy with what we had been asked to do. Laura Caddock, Cooper Parry
