Lucy Air Ambulance for Children (Lucy AAC) is a national charity that ensures babies and critically ill children can access specialist treatment and care, wherever they are in the UK.
Who are Lucy AAC?
Lucy AAC provides life saving care to children across the UK. Often the only way these children can access this care is to travel between hospitals by aeroplane and Lucy AAC is the only air ambulance charity in the UK that provides this unique service. These transfers provide life-changing outcomes for the children Lucy AAC fly, including children being discharged from long hospital stays, overcoming diseases like cancer, and receiving a diagnosis which finally enables families to gain new support from other organisations that are disease/disability specific. The NHS does not have any budget for air ambulance transfers and relies on Lucy AAC to provide this essential service at no cost.
