GWAAC is the air ambulance for South Gloucestershire
South Gloucestershire is home to our operational base. Situated on the junction to the M4 and M5 motorways it gives us excellent access by road for our critical care cars as well as being a great location for our helicopter.
South Gloucestershire is also home to our second shop, in Yate Shopping Centre, as well as being the gateway to Wales, with both the Severn Bridge and Prince of Wales Bridge starting there.
Whilst only 15% of our missions in 2022 were called out to South Gloucestershire, this is where every mission starts, and the vital hub for our crew – where they plan, train and leap into action.
We have an incredible community of supporters that live and work in South Gloucestershire, and we’re always looking for more friendly faces to join the GWAAC family. Your support couldn’t be more local, so reach out about fundraising or volunteering opportunities today to help keep us flying from our South Gloucestershire base.

“Thanks to everyone’s actions that day, Logan is alive and well, with no side effects due to the quick response of the paramedics and the specialist skills that only your air ambulance team could bring. I am so thankful to everyone who helped us that day.”
