Air Ambulances 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 funds through national partnerships 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 is a national platform for the sector and works to raise awareness of the lifesaving work of air ambulance crews and the difference they make.
Our three areas of focus are to champion, support and represent the invaluable work of the air ambulance community.
