CFR Charity

Can you help?

The South Central Ambulance Charity helps the local ambulance service by recruiting, training and equipping the volunteers who support the vital work the ambulance service delivers across our region.

As a South Central Ambulance Charity volunteer you will get training for the role you want to undertake and will become part of the  committed, fulfilled  and fantastic team who are helping  your local ambulance service to help your friends, family and community.  Volunteering for us can deliver all kinds of opportunities. Some of our volunteers go on to find paid professional work in the ambulance service, and one even won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service this year .

It doesn’t matter how much or how little time you have, or how fit and able you are. We have volunteering opportunities to suit everyone – all you need is a real desire to help.

We need three kinds of volunteers (click on the links to find out more about each role):

How we will support you

The ambulance service really values its volunteers, and we make the same commitment to everyone who gives up their time to support us. We promise that all our volunteers:

  • Will join well managed teams where they will make new friends and learn new skills.
  • Will get the training they need to fulfil their role.
  • Will get a disclosure and barring check undertaken at our expense (if needed).
  • Will be able to claim back for any out of pocket expenses like mileage they do whilst volunteering.
  • Will be supported by the relevant professional team in SCAS.
  • Will have clear guidance, in writing, about the role they have volunteered for and what it entails.
  • Will be able to ask us for a reference if they are applying for work or other volunteering opportunities.
