Supporting the Service’s charities

Our charity is split into two. One fund supports our staff by improving their working environment and the other helps fund our volunteer responder programmes – valuable additional response resources helping us go to the aid of those in need in the capital and provide the best care to our patients.

The London Ambulance Service Charitable Fund

The London Ambulance Service charitable fund receives donations and legacies from patients and members of the public.

Our charitable fund exists to support the work of the Service and improve the working environment for our staff.

Leaving a gift in your will to the fund is a fantastic way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime.

If you would like to make a donation, you can do so online via the Donate to the fund link on the right hand side of this page. This will direct you to our JustGiving page.

You can also make a donation by cheque, payable to “London Ambulance Service charitable fund” and posted to:

We support the work of volunteer lifesavers in the capital through a registered charity – the London Ambulance Service Voluntary Responder Group.

The London Ambulance Voluntary Responder Group is made of of three sections:

  • Emergency Responders clinically-trained volunteers responding on blue lights alongside ambulances to 999 calls
  • Community first responders – defibrillator-trained St John Ambulance volunteers attending on call from their homes and responding to 999 calls in their own car without blue lights alongside ambulances
  • Public-access defibrillator sites – people who work at these locations trained to use a defibrillator and respond to emergencies while an ambulance is on the way
