We believe in children – no matter their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour – and we support some of the most vulnerable children in the UK with our essential services, campaigns and research. Our vision is a world where no child is turned away. Our purpose is to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children. Today we run over 996 services and 679 shops in local communities throughout the UK. Last year we helped transform the lives of over 248,000 of the UK’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable children, young people and families.

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance exists to bring immediate, life-saving critical care to patients when they need it most. From receiving a call the helicopter can be airborne within 4 minutes and can reach anywhere in Hampshire within 15 minutes and the Isle of Wight within 20.

The charity operates an Airbus H135, the latest generation of EC135 helicopter, which is specially equipped for night flying. Flying 7 days a week, 365 days a year, the helicopter is called out many times a day to attend to road traffic collisions, sporting accidents, collapses and many other incidents, and these missions are often life-saving. The highly skilled crew of Doctors, Paramedics and Pilots can be at the scene of an incident within minutes, ready to deliver the same level of care that you would expect from a hospital emergency department.

It currently costs in excess of £230,000 a month to maintain the life-saving service, and they receive no Government or National Lottery funding for routine operations. It is only thanks to the generosity of the communities that keeps the Air Ambulance flying and saving lives.
