About Us... The Children’s Air Ambulance will provide an emergency helicopter service for critically ill children and babies across England. The service has been transferring specialist paediatric care teams to children since the end of 2012, and will commence the emergency transfer of critically ill children by spring this year. By transferring children between hospitals by air we can make sure that the journeys are done quickly and efficiently and ensure that children get the lifesaving treatment they urgently need as soon as is possible, avoiding potentially long and arduous road journeys. Approximately 5,800 young patients need transferring every year in England and Wales, until now the majority of transfers have had to take place by road. TCAA needs your help to raise £134,000 every month to fund vital equipment and resources so that we can run our critically transfer of seriously ill children

Funded solely through the generous donations received from the public and vital support from corporate sponsors; the Charity receive no Government or National Lottery unding.
