Volunteer for Wales Air Ambulance

Our volunteers are an integral part of the Wales Air Ambulance; they provide additional knowledge, skills and ongoing help that supports the Charity across our functions, whether attending fundraising events in the community, helping in our shops or acting as Trustees.

We would not be able to provide our lifesaving services without our volunteers and we trust that you will enjoy your time with us in whatever capacity that you can help with.




"Our volunteers are the backbone and the heart of our Charity, they help us to achieve our goals and they are fundamental in raising the funds which enable us to save lives across Wales.

We are proud to work with a diverse team of volunteers who bring a range of skills and experience and who support us to carry out our vital work.

We hope that you will find your time with us to be enjoyable and rewarding, and that you will feel part of our committed team."



Every day we find a new reason to thank our small but incredibly dedicated band of volunteers.

Volunteers Week (June 1 to 7) presents an excellent opportunity to tell our volunteer crew that they’re amazing human beings who have a special place in our hearts.

But in these hectic times it is often difficult to find the right reason to make that first step into volunteering.

Here are some of the most frequent reasons people are put off volunteering – and why that shouldn’t be a bar for you:

I haven’t got the time – we at Wales Air Ambulance are very flexible! Tell us what time you can give and we’ll try to find a volunteering opportunity that suits you.

I’m too young for volunteering – we’re actively seeking younger volunteers. Even if you can only help in your holidays or after exams we’d love to welcome you for a chat

I’m too busy looking for a job – we might be able to help with that. Volunteering is highly regarded by potential employers, who value community-focused activity. We might even be able to help with a reference.

Volunteers don’t look like me – here at Wales Air Ambulance we have volunteers from all backgrounds, sexual orientation, cultures and abilities. We welcome a diverse and engaged volunteer force.

I have issues with my mental wellbeing – volunteering is known to help with mental health. Volunteers often say the act of giving their time for others and mixing with new friends can help them feel better.

I can’t afford the travel and lunch costs – this shouldn’t be a bar to volunteering with us. We offer expenses for lunch and travel so you should never be out of pocket.

It’s a bit scary to commit – don’t worry. We’re a friendly bunch and you can meet us for a chat and a cuppa before you join the team.
