In light of the Prime Minister’s statement last night regarding the COVID-19 pandemic situation, we have once again enabled our charity staff to continue working from home where possible. That means that our offices in Wellington and Wimborne will only be staffed to deal with those aspects that cannot be home-based. If you have an enquiry and it cannot be answered immediately, please leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Our clinical team remain committed to maintaining a pre-hospital critical care service for 19 hours every day and they continue to be fully operational, working alongside our ambulance service colleagues and local NHS hospital trusts to ensure that patients in Dorset and Somerset continue to receive the best possible care.

During this new lockdown period, any face to face canvassing which promotes our Flight for Life Lottery and Regular Giving schemes door-to-door will once again cease. As will the servicing of our collection boxes and attendance at events, cheque presentations or talks.

With no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery, we rely on your generosity to help us raise our operational costs of over £5 million a year. For those of you who have raised funds recently in aid of the charity and are seeking ways in which to send this to us, you can do this securely by making an online payment via our website. Alternatively, you can call our office on 01823 669604 to obtain bank transfer details or post a cheque to: DSAA, Landacre House, Castle Road, Chelston Business Park, Wellington, TA21 9JQ.

For those of you who continue to support us during these difficult times and on behalf of the patients that need us, thank you!
