We are delighted to receive a £6 million Government funding grant to support the lifesaving work of the UK’s air ambulance charities in the vital role they are playing in the frontline response to COVID-19, while also continuing lifesaving missions in the communities they serve across the UK.
Our unified aim is to bring together global-leading clinical and aviation expertise and world-class businesses and organisations to drive innovation, development and funding of pre-hospital emergency care, enabling air ambulance charities 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.
