North West Ambulance Service Charity

Your support saves and improves lives

From giving a donation, leaving a legacy or volunteering some time, what you do today could positively affect many people living within the North West that need our help.

Established in 2008, our charity funds projects and initiatives outside of our core funding, and provides amongst others, lifesaving equipment such as defibrillators and manual CPR machines. 

Your kind donations also help us fund education and awareness initiatives in your community, such as CardiacSmart, health, well-being and mental health programmes for our amazing staff, training for Community First Responders and things on stations to just make life a little easier for our amazing people.

As the largest geographical ambulance service in the UK we receive around one million emergency calls per year, provide services to a population of seven million people across an area of approximately 5,400 square miles and help support around 5,000 staff members! 

These projects, initiatives and extras wouldn’t be possible without the thoughtful support of patients; family, community members and staff who donate and fundraise for charitable funds.

Your support really makes a difference and helps us save and improve lives.

Thank you for your continued support and generosity.
