During 2020-21 we:-

  • Funded various training programs to support the resilience of colleagues and volunteers
  • Improved outdoor spaces at ambulance stations

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust is the Corporate Trustee of the YAS Charity. This means that The YAS Board of Directors is responsible, as a whole, for the Governance of our Charity.  The Board of Directors have appointed the YAS Charitable Funds Committee to oversee the management of the charity. 

This unique partnership enables us to direct charitable donations to meaningful project which are complimentary to the services provided by The Trust. Find our more about The Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
