The London Ambulance Charity is the official registered NHS charity raising voluntary income to support one of the busiest ambulance services in the UK, if not the world; the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
The Charity raises vital funds to improve patient care through advancements and improved staff wellbeing which are beyond what’s capable solely with statutory government funding. In doing so, we improve the care provided to the over 9 million people who live in, work in, and visit London.
Saving more lives in London – Caring for the people and patients of the London Ambulance Service.
We advance the services provided by London Ambulance Service through the following initiatives:
Advancements in patient care: This includes providing equipment, specialty training, and innovations in emergency care
Staff and volunteer wellbeing: Initiatives that look after staff and volunteers, including Wellbeing Support Vehicles, which provide hot drinks and snacks to paramedics and volunteers out on the road all day
London Lifesavers Volunteer programme: This programme involves providing emergency life support training for anyone, creating a community of London Lifesavers – a group of people with the knowledge and confidence to help others in a life threatening emergency situation.
By playing for just £1 per number per week you can help the staff and volunteers of London Ambulance Service deliver even better care for the patients of London. London Ambulance Charity provides health and wellbeing initiatives to improve their welfare above and beyond what is provided through core government funding.
For example, paramedics on the road all day are provided with a hot drink, healthy snacks, and a wellbeing check-in whilst on shift, thanks to Wellbeing Support Vehicles (WSV’s, formerly known as Tea Trucks). The WSV’s meet staff where they are – including crews at hospital bays and those working in the 999 and 111 control centers – delivering nutrition and support when staff and volunteers need it most.
