To reduce isolation and loneliness 2. To promote intergenerational understanding 3. To improve the quality of life and care for older people and those with dementia 4. To support carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing Our values Age Exchange strives to be person-centred, creative, open and inclusive in all that we do, including activity groups for people with dementia and their carers where they can access support; and community groups for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy physical activity, art, languages and short educational courses. We believe that focusing on the individual using reminiscence-based practices in dementia care, their stories and experiences are the cornerstone of reducing loneliness, making way to improving wellbeing. We want to create an environment where everyone feels valued and included. We recognise that differences exist and thus respond to individual need.

Air Ambulances UK (AAUK) is the national charity supporting the lifesaving work of the UK's air ambulance, enabling them to save even more lives every day. Air ambulance crews bring the Emergency Department to patients who have suffered a life threatening or life changing trauma or medical emergency; providing advanced critical care to save lives. On average an air ambulance can reach someone in urgent need within 15 minutes. Anyone, anywhere in the UK can become a patient at anytime. Air Ambulance charities are collectively dispatched to over 100 lifesaving missions each day across the UK; each mission is funded almost entirely by the generosity of local communities. AAUK raises national funds to invest in the air ambulance community and acts as the one voice on issues of national significance. Our vision is that together we will ensure the best possible chance of survival and patient outcome for everyone in need of lifesaving prehospital care. We do this by supporting, championing and representing the invaluable work of the air ambulance community at a national level.
