Who we are

Wiltshire Air Ambulance was established in March 1990 as a joint venture between the Wiltshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust and the Wiltshire Constabulary. Sharing resources kept our costs down and the charity needed £700,000 a year to keep Wiltshire’s air ambulance in the skies. In January 2015 we started operating a dedicated air ambulance which means we must raise £3.25m a year.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance attend, on average, 3 potentially lifesaving missions a day.

What we do

We provide an essential Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) throughout the county and beyond. The crew works alongside SWASFT (the South Western Ambulance Service foundation Trust) land crews and other emergency services to deliver the best medical care possible to anybody who lives, works or travels in Wiltshire.

The air ambulance can scramble in just two minutes and reach anywhere in Wiltshire within nine minutes. The speed of our helicopter, along with the skill of our crew, can make the difference between life and death.

Why we need you

We are a registered charity and rely almost entirely on public donations to keep us flying and do not receive any central government funding.  We really are funded by you and flying for you.
