Wales Air Ambulance Charity supported by CIPFA Wales Cymru

Wales Air Ambulance

Wales Air Ambulance covers the whole of Wales every single day, reaching anyone in Wales within 20 minutes. We rely entirely on the public’s support through fundraising events and membership of our in-house Lifesaving Lottery to help keep the helicopters flying. We need to raise £6.5m every year to operate the service, with each mission on average costing £1,500. 

Each year our helicopters attend around 2,500 missions from our four airbases in Caernarfon, Llanelli, Welshpool and Cardiff, with patients receiving advanced care before they even reach the hospital. Our mission is to provide an outstanding 24-hour service, and continually strive for it to be available to everyone in Wales.
