Thank you to everyone who supported Air Ambulance Week 2020 last week. It was a very successful week, focussing a spotlight on the incredible lifesaving work of the UK’s 21 air ambulance charities and the highly advanced hospital-level critical care they deliver directly to the side of the most critically injured or ill, when every second counts towards survival.
Our aim is to bring together global-leading clinical and aviation expertise and world-class businesses and organisations to drive innovation, development and funding for air ambulance charities, enabling them to save even more lives every day across the UK.

We will achieve this through offering a broad range of Membership services and Fundraising Partnerships including opportunities to become involved in our clinical, operational and policy research and development programmes, good practice and knowledge sharing forums and committees, Government lobbying on key issues affecting the sector, raising vital funding, commercial investment, national PR activities, campaigns and events.
