Registered Charity No. 1054148

East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EMAS) helps thousands of people every day. 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 go further and make a donation to EMAS. 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).

Your charitable donation will be used to help us to buy new pieces of medical equipment, or to provide improved recreational facilities for our staff. We make sure that donations are spent wisely.

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