Working for us

Wales Air Ambulance is the all-Wales charity that provides vital air cover for time critical illness or injury. We’re on standby every single day of the year, ready to help anyone in Wales during their most difficult hour of need.

We also operate the Children's Wales Air Ambulance, providing specialist treatment and airlifting some of Wales’ youngest patients.

The charity relies entirely on donations to raise £6.5 million every year, to keep our helicopters flying. Fundraising and generating awareness within Wales’ diverse communities is a vital part of reaching that goal. We also run 18 shops and a cafe, which provide essential income to keep the charity’s helicopters in the air and saving lives.
