Wales Air Ambulance Charitable Trust
Please consider jumping for Wales Air Ambulance, we are on standby for the people in Wales, whenever and wherever they need us. Wales Air Ambulance is entirely funded by the public. We do not receive any funding from the Government or the National Lottery. The charity operates three of the most advanced air ambulances in the UK, saving precious time and lives - all thanks to you. We rely entirely on your charitable donations to raise over £6 million every year to keep each helicopter flying in Mid, North and South Wales. It is our mission to help relieve illness and injury with an air ambulance service that is available to everyone in Wales, 365 days a year.
Wales Air Ambulance is an all Wales charity providing vital emergency air cover for those who face life-threatening illness or injury. We have carried out over 20,000 missions to date since our launch on St David's Day 2001, each one costing approximately £1,500. We can be anywhere in Wales within 20 minutes of an emergency call. This fast response time, ability to reach difficult locations and flying to the most appropriate hospital for the patient, greatly improves their survival and early recovery. From 2015 we have consultant level doctors on board providing more advanced treatments, including blood transfusions and anaesthesia - taking accident and emergency to the patient. Wales Air Ambulance continues to move forward with a new airbase near Llanelli boasting the latest technology and facilities for the aircrews. Your help will be a vital part of our mission, saving time, saving lives.
