Get Involved

THIS IS SUGGESTED TEXT – NEEDS EDITING It’s great to be part of a team and our volunteers come together regularly, whether it’s through meeting whilst volunteering or at one of our annual volunteer events.  There are opportunities to meet and learn from the operational team too – you will be given special opportunities to see the helicopter up close and meet the crew, to learn first-hand the essential work of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

Your staff teams will keep you updated on charity news and you will regularly receive information about volunteering opportunities, so you can choose the ones that appeal to you.  When a big event is on, such as our Motorcycle Runs (held in both Essex and Herts) or Air Ambulance Week in September it’s all hands on deck!

We’re sure you’ll find your volunteering experience rewarding and we can’t fly without you!
