We receive no government funding for the work we deliver. Therefore we rely on partnerships to help us keep delivering projects and funding equipment for our colleagues.
We consider ourselves a small regional charity BUT leaving a big lasting impact to our colleagues and volunteers at South Central Ambulance Service in addition to the communities we serve in. You can be apart of that too!
No matter how big or small your business is we would be delighted to hear from you to discuss ways we can work together.

We have been working with our volunteers and the community engagement team to develop a training course in Basic Life Support to be delivered to businesses both big and small. The focus on the course is around how to help save someone’s life when in cardiac arrest.
A cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops pumping blood around the body and causes someone to stop breathing and will collapse. Whilst in cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone’s chance of survival by 10%. This means anyone having cardiac arrest in the workplace would need your help, whether it is a colleague or a customer. Could your business deal with someone cardiac arrest?
Early intervention of CPR and defibrillation can drastically change the chances of survival. With immediate CPR and defibrillation within 3-5 minutes, chances of survival can increase survival by 50-70%.
