How can you recommend us?
If you would like to recommend that we contact a business to discuss how management standards can help them, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0330 058 5551.
Alternatively, you can pass our details on but please do let us know that you’ve recommended us so we can say thank you.
How we thank you
If your recommended business subsequently takes out certification or consultancy with us, we’ll send you a case of wine (you can choose between red, white, rose or mixed) and we’ll make a donation to charity.
If you don’t have a chosen charity, we’ll donate to the Midlands Air Ambulance instead. Each year we raise thousands for this vital service. Read on to find out more about why donations are critical to this charity.
About our chosen charity
The Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (MAAC) is responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and West Midlands. It also offers secondary cover to the surrounding areas, such as Warwickshire and mid-Wales.
Why does it need your support?
Midlands Air Ambulances can reach a specialist hospital from anywhere in the region in less than 15 minutes so they are vital in an emergency. If a casualty is airlifted to hospital within the Golden Hour (one hour of an incident), their chances of survival are significantly increased.
With each mission costing an average of £2,500, the Charity needs to raise in excess of £9 million each year to remain operational. As it receives no state or lottery funding, it solely relies on funding by the public and local businesses.
What do your donations pay for?
MAAC chooses where our recommendation donations are used. It costs £2,500 for each mission but our donations may also contribute towards the costs of vital equipment:
£350 for a clinical flight suit
£600 for a pair of aircrew response bags
£1,500 for an aircrew helmet
£4,000 for a ventilator for use on board the helicopter
£15,000 for a life pack, to include a heart monitor, defibrillator and oxygen
£75,000 for annual medical supplies
£100,000 for annual airbase equipment
