Volunteer With Us

We are extremely proud to be supported by almost 1,000 volunteers who offer their time to support our patients, our staff and our communities.Yorkshire Ambulance Service Volunteering

As a Yorkshire Ambulance Service volunteer, you can expect to be provided with the necessary training, equipment and continuous support from a dedicated team.

You don’t need to have qualifications or previous experience; you just need to be caring, friendly and have some time you’re willing to offer.

Our first Volunteer Development Framework 2023-2026 sets out our commitment to supporting and enhancing volunteering. This is in recognition of the significant benefits volunteering brings to our patients, staff, communities and to volunteers themselves.

Here is a summary of what was achieved against the framework in 2023-2024 and this document provides more detailed information.

Find out more about the impact of volunteering at YAS by viewing the latest National Ambulance Volunteering Dashboard which is compiled by the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives.

We have a range of volunteering activities, with flexibility to fit around you.
