About the charity
South Central Ambulance Charity supports the work of South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS).
SCAS does much more than send an ambulance when you need it, and it relies on the generous support of local people
and local businesses to enable it to go above and beyond what the NHS funds it to do. All the funds we raise through
the charity will be invested in services that are additional to the core NHS services provided by SCAS.
We need your help to enable us to train and equip our volunteers
The Trust is supported by over 1000 volunteers who provide a life-saving service in their local community and
who help drive frail and vulnerable patients to and from vital medical appointments. We rely on donations to the charity
to recruit, train and equip these volunteers.
We need your help to enable us to train and equip local communities to save lives
The Trust works closely with local communities to provide and maintain life-saving public access defibillators in
schools, sports clubs, pubs and shopping centres, and to run training and education projects that help give people of
all ages the confidence to step in and help in an emergency.
Every public access defibrillator we have installed in recent years has been funded by our partners in the local community. We
continue to invest in the lifesaving education and training we deliver to schools and communities across our region.
We need your help to enable us to develop and enhance the care we give you
The Trust is at the forefront of developing innovative new ways to provide emergency care such as connecting local care
homes to paramedics and doctors by video link. Developing the 999 care of the future means investing in research, development
projects and training. Investing in state of the art equipment, research, training and innovation is only possible with the
generous support of the public and local businesses for the South Central Ambulance Charity.
