The extra mile
Welcome to the March 2020 Newsletter!
In this edition we will be showing you how we have used donations generously gifted to the South Western Ambulance Charity to go the extra mile for our exceptional people and the communities served by the South Western Ambulance Service.
About the South Western Ambulance Charity
The South Western Ambulance Charity was created in 1995 with an overall objective to fund activities that benefit the patients of the NHS and therefore provide a public benefit.
Put simply, the aim of the charity is to “Go the extra mile for staff, volunteers and the communities served by the South Western Ambulance Service”.
Although the Ambulance Service is funded by the government through the NHS, there is always a need for extra money to provide an even better service to our patients. We do this in three main ways:
We support our exceptional people
Extending access to sources of help and support with well-being and personal development;
Providing equipment and enhancing facilities.
We support our volunteer heroes
Providing enhanced equipment and training to our Community First Responder groups.
We support our communities
Increasing public access to defibrillators to result in more people receiving a lifesaving shock as quickly as possible, giving them the best possible chance of survival.
