EAAA listed as 7th in the top 100 not-for-profit companies in the UK to work for

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) listed as 7th in the top 100 not-for-profit companies in the UK to work for, as part of the Sunday Times’ Best Companies To Work For listing. They also went from receiving a one star to a three star rating in the year’s listing – which means they have received ‘extraordinary levels of engagement’ from their staff.

The placing and rating of companies is based solely on staff survey feedback results, and as such is down to employee satisfaction within each organisation.

EAAA is a helicopter emergency medical service provider covering East Anglia, with offices in Norwich, Ipswich, Cambridge, Melbourn and Peterborough. They provide a 365-day-a-year life-saving service, taking an expert crew consisting of a doctor, a critical care paramedic and two pilots directly to patients who have suffered life-threatening or life-changing accidents or medical emergencies. The clinical crew are supported by charity staff, consisting of a number of teams including; fundraising, operations, communications, HR and executive teams.

At an awards ceremony in London the charity found out their official ranking, and say they are delighted to have gone up 36 places and be ranked 7th place. The Sunday Times’ Best Companies Awards are awarded every year and aim to showcase and highlight the best companies to work for throughout the UK.

Sarah Atkins, Head of HR at EAAA, said: “This is the second year we have been a part of these listings and are delighted that we have not only been rated at 7th, an amazing 36 places above last year, but have also achieved a three star rating. We have invested a lot of time over the last year focussing on the wellbeing of our staff and ensuring they are well supported, so to know that they themselves rated us highly in this area is very reaffirming. EAAA is such a wonderful place to work because of the whole team that works here – we are incredibly proud.”

As a celebration of The Best Companies Day held today (March 1st), the EAAA team will be having celebratory fish and chips at their upcoming Staff Day to enable duty crew and everyone to be together in one place. A full list of the top 100 Best Companies to work for was published in The Sunday Times.

Founder and CEO of Best Companies, Jonathan Austin, said; “I would like to congratulate East Anglian Air Ambulance on their achievement of their Three Star Accreditation status and being named as one of the UK’s Best Companies to Work for. Best Companies have been producing the Accreditation standard since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace. We are proud that organisations like EAAA focus on their employees and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that they’re a best company to work for.”

  • 20 years together – East Anglian Air Ambulance

    20 years ago, on 6 September 2000, a new charity was formed to help save lives across East Anglia: the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA). Operating initially just one day a week, on a Friday from Norwich Airport, with one paramedic, this was the start of an important lifeline for many local people.

    Monday, the start of National Air Ambulance Week, EAAA can reveal that over the last 20 years it has flown almost 30,000 missions and helped almost 20,000 patients, all thanks to the generosity of local people.

    At a time of so much uncertainty, the charity, which needs to raise £13 million a year to develop and deliver its service, and is aiming to start flying 24/7 for the first time next year, is deeply grateful for the public support which has enable it to pass this milestone.

  • Air ambulance call on Norfolk to help them run 2,000 miles next month

    Together We Run is a new fundraising challenge from East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) which is encouraging local people to pledge their miles towards a collective 2,000 mile target.  

    EAAA normally organises several mass participation challenge events throughout the year, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to help keep its yellow helicopters flying and saving lives. These events cannot go ahead this year, so the charity is asking its supporters to take part in Together We Run instead, a virtual fundraising challenge from 14 – 20 September, to run (or walk) a combined 2,000 miles, wherever and whenever suits them.  

    If successful, this virtual running event could become a regular addition to the charity’s event calendar, along with its Only the Brave muddy obstacle run and Trek 24 walking challenges.  

  • Fakenham’s Black Shuck Gin win charity inspiration award

    The small team at Black Shuck Gin, based in Fakenham, continue to amaze EAAA with their generosity and kindness.

    As well as supporting the charity with a limited edition gin this year and other various fundraising activities, they have spent their time during the lockdown tirelessly working with government authorities to produce a very much needed Alcohol Based Hand Sanitiser.

    This has been donated to regional air ambulances, care homes, schools and key workers to help save lives during the pandemic. Black Shuck Gin have made a huge impact on EAAA and on the wider community. 

    Patrick and Sarah Saunders of Black Shuck Gin said: "We were thrilled, honoured and proud to hear that we had won the Most Inspirational Business Category in the East Anglian Air Ambulance Inspiration Awards. All of the nominees were outstanding and we thoroughly enjoyed reading all of their stories."

  • Funding opportunity for charities supporting the community during coronavirus

    Charities are being offered an essential lifeline to allow them to carry out essential services during the coronavirus outbreak with grants available of up to £10,000.

    Norfolk Community Foundation is encouraging charities on the frontline who are making a real difference within our communities to get in touch and apply for a grant. 

    While the pandemic is affecting everyone, it’s clearly having a big impact on particular vulnerable groups that may not have their usual level of access to support so grants have never been more important.

  • Air ambulance launches emergency appeal to protect crew from Covid-19

    East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is still flying and saving lives during the Covid-19 pandemic, but the cost of keeping its crews safe has been significant.

    The charity has had to quickly adapt its operating procedures and source large amounts of personal protective equipment (PPE) in order to keep its two critical care teams safe and able to support the region’s emergency services. The estimated cost of acquiring the additional PPE now required over a six-month period is over £100,000.

    The charity has launched an emergency appeal for donations to help fund the PPE, which is protecting its crews and keeping the air ambulance teams safe.

    More than £25,000 of unbudgeted funds has already been spent on items such as respirators, high-protection masks, visors, suits, gowns and goggles to protect the doctors and critical care paramedics who are working in the pre-hospital environment.
