Children's Air Ambulance (part of The Air Ambulance Service)

We fly critically ill babies and children across the UK to get the specialist life-saving care they need. Our helicopters not only take children around four times faster to hospitals with the specialist facilities that will save their life, they also provide intensive care in the air.

About us

The Children’s Air Ambulance began in 2012. After a lot of hard work, dedication and passion we began to transfer specialist paediatric teams to treat seriously ill children. This national service is the first and only dedicated helicopter transfer service for critically ill children – a flying intensive care unit.

In May 2013 we transferred our very first baby to the emergency surgery he needed. We transported Theo to the care he so very badly needed in only 15 minutes. A journey that could have taken up to an hour by road.

Since then we have gone on to achieve over 300 missions!

The Children’s Air Ambulance is dedicated to helping children all across the UK get to the care and support they need. Fast. In fact, we can get children to the care they need 4 times faster than if they were to go by road.

Our charity does not receive any government funding and provides all our services free of charge. We are driven by first class professionals, supported by a small army of volunteers and rely entirely on the generous donations of the public to fund our work.

As we are not supported by government funds we rely on the kindness of your donations to help keep us flying.
