Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust has its own charity which uses donations and legacies from grateful patients, members of the public and fundraising initiatives.

The YAS Charity uses the funds raised to save more lives across Yorkshire and The Humber, by enabling EVERYONE to respond to a medical emergency in the appropriate way and by supporting those who deal with such emergencies.

We are currently saving more lives by funding:

  • Community Public Access Defibrillators - which are accessible to the public 24/7 increasing the chances of survival after a cardiac arrest. We fund these in partnership with local communities who then own and look after the device.
  • Free First Aid Training - we believe everyone should know what to do in a medical emergency. We train community groups who would not normally have access to this training across Yorkshire. 
  • Restart a Heart Day – each year we train 30,000 young people in basic lifesaving skills – hands only CPR. YAS staff volunteer their time to achieve this and the charity provides financial support.
  • YAS BASIC Doctors – YAS has a network of volunteer doctors who can respond to medical traumas. The doctors give their time for free and the YAS Charity funds their equipment and training expenses.
  • YAS Employees Health and Wellbeing – we support our YAS colleagues with health and wellbeing projects.

If you would like further information on the YAS Charitable Fund or wish to discuss any fundraising plans then please call Maria on 01924 584210 / 07824 540107 or email charitablefunds@yas.nhs.uk
