At SCAA we value our volunteers and they are part of the team that keeps our helicopter flying.

Events Volunteers

SCAA is often to be seen out and about at shows, events, fun days, supermarket collections etc. We need volunteers who are happy to come along and help sell our merchandise, join in our bucket collection and generally help raise awareness about our life-saving work.

If this sounds like something that could be of interest then please get in touch – we would love to hear from you.

"I've volunteered at many events since becoming involved with SCAA and have enjoyed them all! Speaking to members of the public has been fun and interesting, while everyone at SCAA has been very friendly and welcoming. It is very satisfying to know that our efforts are helping to keep Helimed 76 do such a fantastic and vital job."


Volunteer Collection Coordinators

SCAA is seeking volunteers to place collecting cans in their local area. You will be the point of contact in your area that will service the cans, You will be fully supported by a staff member and given full instructions. If you have a few spare hours and would like to get out and about in your community – then get in touch as we need you!

"Being a collection can co-ordinator is a great way for me to support SCAA, it’s flexible and I choose the hours I volunteer which leaves me with time for my other commitments. I have used my local knowledge to place the cans and I have found that local businesses are very supportive of this cause and are happy to display a can."


Volunteer Speakers

If you like speaking to groups and inspiring your audience, then we have great speaking opportunities for you. We receive requests from all over Scotland for speakers to talk to local groups about the life-saving work of our charity. Full training and support will be provided. Get in touch – for more information.

"As a volunteer speaker for SCAA I have been visiting local organisations and groups that are interested in hearing about the charity. They can be interesting evenings with attentive audiences. SCAA provided me with the training I needed and I was asked to attend a few presentations before I was asked to ‘go solo’ so I was comfortable with the questions people asked."



Are you able to turn your hand to various office tasks? We need help with tasks which can range from emptying collecting buckets and cans and counting cash, answering the phone, filing – the list is varied! You will be working with a great team and a fantastic cause. Does this sound of interest to you? Just get in touch.

"After reading about Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance in my local paper, I got in touch to see if I could get involved with volunteering. I had time on my hands whilst seeking a job and felt that putting my existing admin skills to good use and learning some new ones would be of mutual benefit and a great way to fill my days."
