London’s Air Ambulance Charity is powered by volunteers 

Their passion and dedication means that we can keep on being there for the people of London. Volunteers give their time and energy to support the charity to raise funds for our life-saving work, whether that’s weekly, monthly or a few times a year. We are always looking for enthusiastic, reliable and committed people to join our growing team of volunteers and community champions. Our roles are flexible and can fit around you – whether you want to contribute regularly or occasionally.

Celebrating our wonderful volunteers this Volunteers Week 

To mark 2024’s Volunteers Week, we spoke to a few of our dedicated individuals to hear some of their favourite volunteering memories and advice for future volunteers. Read their experiences of volunteering.

I enjoy volunteering as it enables me to meet new people. I find supporting the charity rewarding, as it helps to spread the word within the community and raise awareness that London’s Air Ambulance is a charity and needs our support.

What if I have a criminal record?
