Link to: About us

We champion, represent and support the lifesaving work of air ambulance charities right across the UK, enabling them to save even more lives every day

We are focussed on providing vital national funding support, raising awareness, enabling advancements in patient care, advocating on key issues and policy, as well as being the central hub for the exchange of information and knowledge across the air ambulance sector.

Our work is vital because air ambulance charities form part of the UK’s frontline emergency response services, making lifesaving missions to around 80 people a day in urgent need of pre-hospital lifesaving care, but are funded by donations.
