The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust provides a free home security service for anyone over 60 or, 18+ with a registered disability, living in Wiltshire and Swindon, who has become, or is at risk of becoming, a victim of house crime, cyber-crime or domestic abuse. 

The Trust was set up in 1998  and visits over 1,500 homes each year.  The Trust works in partnership with Wiltshire Police and Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service, as well as a number of  other agencies, to ensure the most  effective use of resources available and that those in need of help receive it promptly.

Their Stay Safe Online scheme provides advice and education on  using the internet safely and how to recognise scams. To find out more about their services go to www.wiltshirebobbyvan.org.uk

Wiltshire Air Ambulance has been saving lives for more than 30 years. We are a registered charity providing an essential Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) in Wiltshire, Bath and surrounding areas.

During 2021, we undertook 1,104 missions as we came through another difficult year on the front line. Operational up to 19 hours a day, 365 days a year, the aircrew are called to, on average, three incidents a day in our helicopter and Rapid Response Vehicles (cars). 

It costs £4 million a year to keep Wiltshire Air Ambulance flying, that’s around £11,000 per day. We rely on donations to continue our lifesaving service and receive no regular direct funding from the Government or National Lottery grants.

For more information about the charity, including ways to fundraise, donate or volunteer, please visit www.wiltshireairambulance.co.uk
