Since 2005 we have been supporting and working closely together with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) charity:

  • We are official member of the YAA’s Business Supporters Network
  • We support YAA through various fundraising events and sponsorships
  • We reduce YAA’s mobile costs by some 80% and provide them with superfast 4G technology.

YAA is a rapid response air emergency service…

…serving a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres.

 

The charity was set up in 2000…

…and they were the first Air Ambulance to own and operate a Dedicated Air Desk in the UK.

 

The two air ambulances operate from…

…The Nostell Priory Estate near Wakefield and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk.

 

YAA providing state-of-the-art emergency…

…medical care throughout Yorkshire, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

 

The swift medical interventions provided…

…by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance crews have a major impact on a patient’s chance of survival and subsequent quality of life.

 

To keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances in the air…

…they need to raise £9,990 per day, which is  equivalent to £3.6 million per year.

Intouch Advance are official member of…

…the Yorkshire Air Ambulance‘s Business Supporters Network and we are named on their Roll of Honour.

 

We support YAA through various fundraising…

…events, sponsorship and by providing them our products and services at cost price.

 

Intouch Advance have been working with…

…and supporting YAA by looking after their mobile requirements, supplying 4G mobile phones, data sims and dongles.

 

Thanks to the market leading superfast 4G technology…

…that we supply YAA, they are able to gain access to data when out in the helicopter much quicker and relay information back to the ground instantly.

 

All of our products and services are supplied to YAA at cost…

…we do not make a profit from the charity and we help keep a tight rein on YAA’s telecoms spend via monthly audits.

 

“The benefits of us using Intouch Advance have been enormous. The savings to us in telephone costs since we started using them has been significantly high.”
