Registered Charity No. 1054148

Every day East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EMAS) helps thousands of people, often in challenging and distressing environments. 

Some of these people choose to say thank you for the care they received by writing letters of appreciation to us.

Some people choose to donate to EMAS or to raise funds to allow us to support the well-being of our patients, staff and volunteers, to boost innovative training and development, to buy new pieces of medical equipment and to deliver quality lifesaving care and patient services.

Others choose to donate to EMAS Charitable Funds in memory of a loved one at the time of the funeral. If this is something you would like to consider, this can be discussed with our Charitable Funds team, and more details can be found on websites external to EMAS, for example Memory Giving and Just Giving.

We are extremely grateful for all the support we receive in this way and our charitable fund ensures that money donated to us is put to good use. This fund is registered with the Charity Commission (registered charity number 1054148).

Donors are welcome to indicate how they would like their donation to be used, however the trustees will make the final decision based on the level of need within EMAS. We are happy to talk through any requests.
