TVACAA operates across the three counties of Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire (BOB). However, Air Ambulances have no clinical boundaries and can often be called out to attend emergencies in neighbouring counties when further assistance is required by the resident Air Ambulance.
The 'Golden Hour' is a term often used in emergency medicine to denote the vital period immediately after an accident or the onset of an acute illness.
Patient survival rates are improved if treatment is provided within this 'Golden Hour' and the Air Ambulance has the ability to provide the speed and treatment that can make all the difference.
At WORKAID, we are committed to tackling poverty in a practical way by helping disadvantaged people, overseas and in the UK, to help themselves through practical skills training.
Unwanted tools and equipment are collected from all over the UK and refurbished by a team of dedicated volunteers at the WORKAID workshop.
The refurbished tools are then sent to vocational training projects where they help vulnerable and disadvantaged people to learn trade skills and start their own businesses.
