About Us

Everything We Do is Over and Above

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charity exists to raise funds to help your ambulance service help you. We are helping save more lives across Yorkshire by funding projects which enable everyone to respond in a medical emergency. Over 30,000 people suffer cardiac arrests outside of hospital in the UK every year. Their chances of survival double if it happens in front of a bystander who immediately starts CPR before our arrival.

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.
