How To Help Volunteer With Us Volunteer Volunteer with us As a volunteer you will play a vital role in helping us to keep our helicopter flying and our critical care team operational 365 days a year across Somerset and Dorset. Volunteering enables supporters to become more involved with a charity that is close to their heart. It gives people the opportunity to make friends, to learn new skills and to represent the Charity in a more formal way. People donate their time for a number of reasons, but the most common is: personal satisfaction, to do something worthwhile, to be active or to have social contact. We have an amazing team of volunteers who work incredibly hard on our behalf. Together they cover 2,636 square miles between them. That’s a big challenge as you can imagine! By becoming a Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Charity Volunteer you can expect to have an exceptional support team who will encourage and support you in every way. We can also guarantee that you will meet some extraordinary, dedicated and diverse people. We have around 100 volunteers who dedicate their time and skills in many different ways. We are so grateful and proud of all of our volunteers. Enquire today Volunteer vacancies Below is a list of the volunteer roles we are currently hoping to fill.

Collection Box Servicer We are looking for volunteers to help look after our collection boxes. Full training will be provided as there are certain procedures that must be followed for this important role; it’s also a great opportunity for you to get out there and meet new people on a regular basis. Event Representative Events come in different shapes and sizes; many that we attend are in aid of the Charity, whilst others are where we are invited to have a presence. One thing is certain, we simply wouldn’t be able to attend the number we do, without our amazing team of volunteers. We use these opportunities to sell our official Charity merchandise, hand out literature, chat to members of the public, raise funds and awareness of the work we do in the local community. Being an event representative can also include transporting, setting up and dismantling Charity equipment. Many of the events take place at weekends, so if you like getting out and about, this could be right up your street!
