The charity is in the process of moving to a new headquarters and world-class training facility at Progress House.
Charity staff have now moved into Progress House, at Urlay Nook, near Eaglescliffe, with the helicopters and critical care teams due to follow later this year once the hangar is built. The facility will bring together the fundraising, lottery, admin and operational teams under one roof for the first time, while also hosting our renowned pre-hospital medicine courses.
A world-class facility
Work continues on our new home at Progress House, Eaglescliffe. The pre-existing office block has been renovated and in late April fundraising and admin staff moved in. Work has now started on the hangar and landing facilities for our aircraft. Once complete, our team based at Durham Tees Valley Airport will move in before Christmas 2019.
Saving money, saving lives
We are always careful with our money and so we are pleased to be making a move that will leave us in a better position. The move will save us around £120,000 in rent and rates on our three existing locations. This money will be better spent on frontline care and improving our service.
But as ever, we still need the support of the public in keeping our aircraft and crew flying across the region.
Raising the bar
The new base will allow us to develop our renowned training functions – which already attract clinicians from all over the world. It will allow us to research new equipment and methods that will save lives here in the North-East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria. And it will provide a permanent home for our helicopters, critical care team, and the fundraising and admin staff who make it all possible.
