In light of the recently launched Charity Commission inquiry into the Air Ambulance Foundation UK (1155345). Air Ambulances UK wants to reassure supporters, members, and partners that they are in no way affiliated with the Air Ambulance Foundation UK.
Air Ambulances UK (AAUK) is the national charity supporting the lifesaving work of the UK’s air ambulance charities, enabling them to save even more lives every day. AAUK raises national funds to invest in the air ambulance community and acts as the one voice on issues of national significance.
Air ambulance crews bring the Emergency Department to patients who have suffered a life threatening or life changing trauma or medical emergency; providing advanced critical care to save lives.
On average an air ambulance can reach someone in urgent need within 15 minutes. Anyone, anywhere in the UK can become a patient at any time. Air ambulance charities are collectively dispatched to over 100 lifesaving missions each day across the UK; each mission is funded almost entirely by the generosity of local communities.
AAUK’s three areas of focus are to champion, support and represent the invaluable work of the air ambulance community which includes the specialist and rapid treatment of children and young people
