How you help
Wellington Free Ambulance is the only emergency ambulance service in Greater Wellington and Wairarapa, and the only ones in the country who are free.
Over 90 years ago, the then-mayor of Wellington, Sir Charles Norwood started Wellington Free Ambulance with a commitment that emergencies in the community need not cost people their lives, or their money.
It’s this vision that drives Wellington Free today. It spurs us to forever keep innovating and evolving our service, so we’re continually delivering impact that resounds louder than lights and sirens
Wellington Free Ambulance respond to thousands of emergencies every year, whether it is over the phone or in-person. From the labyrinth streets of the Welly CBD, to the boulevards of the Kapiti coast, the winding hills of the Remutakas and the long straights of SH2: we’re here with you, proudly serving the distinct localities of our region.
Your support this Onesie Day will help us reach our target of $250,000 for our first ever Onesie Day ambulance! It may seem like a lot but every little bit helps us get there.
From helping pay for bandages and medical equipment, medication and stretchers, through to fuel and tyres for our ambulances, your support means we can provide urgent medical care whenever and wherever we’re needed.
