Arrive Alive is a non government funded charity that supports lifesaving volunteers - CFR's who attend local medical emergencies.

Every Second Counts

Arrive Alive is the UK's only registered charity that is solely dedicated to funding lifesaving voluntary operated vehicles and equipment for Community First Responders (CFR's) approved by West Midlands Ambulance Service. CFR's are volunteers trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service who can attend a 999 call in those vital seconds/minutes prior to a road or air ambulance. Arrive Alive is a none government, NHS or lottery funded charity.

Arrive Alive funds vital lifesaving vehicles and equipment for Community First Responder (CFR's). At present we have 3 voluntary operational vehicles, with a 4th due to become operational for summer 2020.

Arrive Alive is solely funded by voluntary donations and does not receive national lottery funding, NHS funding or government funding.

CFR's are medically trained volunteers who attend 999 calls in those vital seconds/minutes prior to a road or air ambulance.

CFR's have the skills to attend 999 calls but we need your help to get them to the medical emergency.


Help us to save lives within communities.

Andy Jeynes Community Response Manager for West Midlands Ambulance Service UNHSFT said

''We are overwhelmed by the generosity of Arrive Alive and the support they have given our Community Responders. WMAS UNHSFT have a number of Responders across the region who support the Ambulance Service in delivering the right Patient care to the Right place at the right Time. These Volunteers respond in their own time to life threatening emergencies to render first aid prior to the arrival of an Ambulance. They are completely self-funded and the provision of Scheme Responder cars by Arrive Alive to these lifesaving groups is amazing. WMAS UNHSFT welcome the support Arrive Alive have given our Schemes and we look forward to continuing working together''
