Not everyone realises that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance relies solely on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across the region. In fact, as an independent Charity they only receive help through secondment of the paramedics from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust. We need to raise £12,000 per day to keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances and highly-trained crew in the air. This is the equivalent of £4.4M every single year.
As a rapid response lifesaving emergency service, our air ambulances serve a population of five million people across four million acres. Our two new Airbus H145 helicopters operate from Nostell Priory near Wakefield in West Yorkshire and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk in North Yorkshire, covering the whole of Yorkshire seven days a week, 365 days per year. Night vision flying from 2017 extends the hours of operation.
Wherever the air ambulance lands at the scene of an accident, it is a maximum of 20 minutes from a Major Trauma Centre for the patient’s injuries or illness.
Over 7,300 patients’ lives have been changed by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance since the Charity began in October 2000.
Volunteers are the bread and butter of our organisations, from tin collections, stalls and talks are volunteers provide us with the vital support we need to operate effectively.
As a growing organisation, we are looking for enthusiastic and friendly individuals to come and join our life saving team. Being part of the YAA is flexible and caters to your lifestyle.
Why not go along to your regional open evening to meet volunteers alike and the fundraisers you could be working with.
