The Institute of Pre-Hospital Care at London's Air Ambulance would not exist and continue to develop without the amazing support of some of our key funders. We are extremely grateful to the Fidelity UK Foundation that helped to establish the Institute at the very beginning and The Beaverbrook Foundation, The Doris Pacey Charitable Foundation and The Hospital Saturday Fund who all provided essential seed funding for the Institute to take shape and evolve during its first years.
The support of Trusts and Foundations, livery companies and the corporate sector is vital for The Institute to continue saving lives and to expand our world-leading influence on driving excellence in pre-hospital care standards and practice in the U.K. and abroad. It is also essential in order for us to maintain and enhance our life-saving research, innovations and education programmes.
Treating patients who have suffered serious traumatic injury is at the heart of what we do. Your support is vital to us and enables us to develop new clinical interventions, conduct research and educate the next generation of pre-hospital care experts to deliver world-leading treatment when patients are most in need and suffering life-threatening injuries.
Donations and grants can be awarded to support our ground-breaking educational projects as well as medical training, equipment and essential kit. If you would like further information on how to support The Institute, please contact:

We would like acknowledge the following Trusts and Foundations, corporate supporters and individuals who continue to support the work of The Institute and who have contributed to our work in the past.
The Beaverbrook Foundation provided vital seed funding to enable London’s Air Ambulance to create The Institute of Pre-Hospital Care. Following this, The Beaverbrook Foundation continued to support The Institute to create the next generation of trauma experts by providing scholarships to students enrolled on the Intercalated BSc in Pre-Hospital Medicine that is run in partnership with Queen Mary University of London. The Beaverbrook Scholarship Programme covered the full cost of The iBSc tuition fees for the duration of the academic programme and provided additional financial support for the scholars to attend international or national conferences related to their studies. To date seven exceptional students have been awarded the scholarship, all of whom went on to achieve excellent results in the iBSc.
In September 2017, The Institute was awarded a significant multi-year grant from The James Tudor Foundation to support the launch of the first ever Golden Hour Conference - Why do injured people die? The conference took place in November 2018 and played a pivotal role in the Golden Hour Knowledge Innovation Project which was set up to transform current knowledge and understanding of why patients die from traumatic injury. This conference, along with the subsequent conference - The Golden Hour Conference II - The Pathology of Traumatic Injury in November 2019 -
Bremont supported The Institute of Pre-Hospital Care by donating the proceeds of a special edition veteran's watch they designed for doctors and paramedics at London's Air Ambulance. With the proceeds, The Institute was able to invest in an ALSi patient monitor simulator and battery pack, an essential piece of training equipment that we use in our high-fidelity scenario training. The iSimulate ALSi patient monitor simulator works in unison with our Lifecast Body Simulation medical manikins to mimic the vital signs of a trauma patient. This high-tech equipment is essential for The Institute to deliver training which is true-to-life and which will prepare our doctors, paramedics and medical students for what they may face on scene.
In January 2018, internationally acclaimed sporting artist, Jeremy Houghton, held an exclusive exhibition at Gallery 8 in Green Park where he donated 25% of the proceeds of all paintings sold in support of The Institute of Pre-Hospital Care at London's Air Ambulance. The works of art included a bespoke piece Jeremy created whilst visiting the London's Air Ambulance Helipad.
