Volunteer at your local shop or café

Volunteer at your local shop or café

You can do all aspects of retail from stockroom to sales floor, operating the tills, merchandising, stock sorting, pricing, valuations and support to staff.

If you want to see where it all starts, we have volunteer opportunities in our goods warehouse and on the road with our collection and delivery team.

Wales Air Ambulance also runs cafés in North Wales, providing a new and exciting source of income for the charity.

Charity Offices

We have bustling teams based in Llanelli, Caernarfon, Welshpool and Cardiff.

From these offices, Wales Air Ambulance comes into fruition. Volunteers can be a part of this team, helping with fundraising and administration duties.

Media

Choose from a host of ways to help Wales Air Ambulance as a media volunteer. Do you have skills as a photographer, cameraperson or web/graphic designer?

Or could you help us monitor media coverage as a press clippings scout? This is an ideal opportunity for media professionals and aspiring students looking to support a charity, develop skills and spruce up CVs.

Do you have a story to tell? Wales Air Ambulance is also looking for former patients willing to help awareness as a media volunteer by sharing their experiences.
