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.
We are a registered charity and rely almost entirely on public donations to keep us flying.
We really are funded by you and flying for you.
We are now based from our new airbase in Semington, Melksham, as of the 10th of May. This airbase will allow us to reach anywhere in Wiltshire within 11 minutes, just as we have done before. This custom built base will help us to build a better future for your air ambulance.
