The charity has moved to a new headquarters and world-class training facility at Progress House.
Charity staff, critical care teams and our helicopters have now moved into Progress House, at Urlay Nook, near Eaglescliffe. The facility brings 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
The pre-existing office block has been renovated and in April 2019 fundraising and admin staff moved in. Work then started on the hangar and landing facilities for our aircraft. Our team based at Teesside International Airport moved in on 11 August 2020.
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.
