Volunteer for us

Volunteers provide much-needed additional support to the Charity by spreading the word about YAA in local communities, increasing our fundraising opportunities, and providing valuable skills and experience. Volunteers are an integral part of our YAA family, without their help we could not raise the much-needed funds to keep this vital service flying.

We are always looking for enthusiastic, reliable, and committed people to join the team. Our volunteer’s passion and dedication mean that we can continue to be there for the people of Yorkshire and continue saving lives.

Our volunteer roles are flexible and can fit around you, whether that’s weekly, monthly, or a few times a year.

Work Experience/Placement Requests

We appreciate that Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a very attractive prospect for those looking for any form of work experience, whether it be on the charity side, in engineering, or with the crew. However, due to the sheer volume of requests we receive, alongside a variety of operation issues, the sensitive nature of many of the roles, and the varying and often inconsistent working patterns our team operates, we are unable to offer any form of work experience/placement within the Charity.
