As a volunteer you will play a vital role in helping us to keep our two helicopters flying 365 days a year and saving lives across East Anglia
We completely depend on a dedicated, diverse and flexible group of individuals who volunteer to support us in delivering this life-saving service. We have around 250 volunteers who dedicate their time and skills in many different ways. We are hugely grateful and proud of all our volunteers.
“Some of our volunteers give their time regularly whilst others help out occasionally. Every hour of time given to us can make a huge difference.”
Volunteer Programme Manager

You will always be fully supported in whatever role you choose, either by a fellow volunteer or a member of staff. Our Volunteer Development Officer is always on hand to help and deal with any questions or concerns.
There are opportunities to progress in your volunteering career with EAAA. This really depends on you and how much you’d like to be involved. There are also opportunities to get involved in project committees or even become a trustee.
Are you still eager to get involved with EAAA, and you’d love to help out in any way possible? Volunteering with the EAAA is really simple:
- Check out our current volunteer vacancies page to find a role that you’re interested in
- Apply for the role by downloading and filling out our volunteer application form
Once we have received your application we can invite you to an informal interview and then an induction. If necessary, you will receive relevant training and further support.
EAAA’s volunteer induction is a chance for you to find out more about us and the role for which you applied, meet other volunteers and ask any questions. At the induction you can sign up for your first shift and away you go!
“Volunteering gives me a feel good factor. It provides the opportunity to give something back and the opportunity to meet people, challenge myself and provide a support to the EAAA a fantastic charity. Volunteering with my husband means we have met some fantastic people through our volunteering role and never ceased to be amazed by people and their generosity. ”
