How you help
All donations made to our Onesie Annual Appeal go towards keeping our services free of charge, just as founder Sir Charles Norwood intended when he founded the service 95 years ago this year.
Wellington Free Ambulance is the only emergency ambulance service for Greater Wellington and Wairarapa and the only service in New Zealand that is free.
As an essential health service we receive the majority of our funding from Government but have to raise around $7Million each year from fundraising to met the gap.
How your donations help

will replace the tyres used on an ambulance that travels thousands of kilometres around the region providing daily care
provides Wellington Free Ambulance with a fully kitted out vehicle to help the Greater Wellington and Wairarapa communities
