Volunteer for us

And become a part of our Ground Crew

Interested in getting involved through volunteering? You can find examples of our volunteering roles below. 

Here at GWAAC, we’re very lucky to have a dedicated and passionate team of volunteers who give up their time to raise awareness and support from the local community. We need to raise over £4 million a year to stay operational, and it’s the support from our local community that enables us to do this, continuing our life-saving work. Awareness really is key to keeping us flying, and so we highly value our volunteers' hard work.

We ask for no minimum time commitment from our volunteer ‘Ground Crew’ – we just ask that you passionately represent us and the work we do to the public. Need further convincing? Here are 5 reasons why you should think about joining our GWAAC Volunteer family:

  • Support a local charity you care about
  • No minimum time commitment – one hour a year, one hour a week…it all counts!
  • See our airbase and meet our amazing crew
  • Give back to your community
  • Have fun!

If you're interested in joining our Ground Crew, then contact us with the form below or call our charity office on 0303 4444 999 to discuss the  many ways you can get involved. Please note that we do not currently offer operational, airbase, or medical volunteering opportunities.

Could you be our next Chair of Trustees? 

We’re looking for an experienced Trustee who knows how excellent Boards work, how to get the very best out of great people, and how to help wonderful organisations become even better. We need someone who is a natural networker and people-person, who can understand complex information, and can ask key questions in a way that is as supportive as it is challenging. 

Public Speaker Volunteer

Confident? Personable? Good communicator? Our speaking volunteers give anything between two talks a year to two talks a month to local community groups and organisations. Dip in and out as and when you have the time – use our GWAAC presentation template and you’re free to deliver in your own unique style.

Events and Collections Fundraising

Offer a few hours of your time to help us fundraise at local events, collections, fairs, fetes, shows, plays, sports games…the list goes on! Come along solo, with friends, family or colleagues; we’d love to see you more than once but if you’re interested in one-off volunteering get in touch!

Great Western Heartstarters

Medical background? Few hours to spare every few months? Get involved with our Great Western Heartstarters programme teaching CPR, AED use, and recovery position in secondary schools in Bristol and surrounding counties. We’ve already taught thousands of local children but need your help to reach even more!
