The London Ambulance Service Benevolent Fund

The London Ambulance Service Benevolent Fund was established in 1966 by a group of dedicated LAS employees from within the various disciplines of the service and was the first Ambulance Service Benevolent Fund in the UK. The fund was established to support and give assistance to members who may suffer extreme cases of financial hardship, due to reasons beyond their own control, such as loss of pay due to prolonged sickness, caring for a dependent, sudden death or any happenings that may create severe hardship.

The group of employees that set up the fund sought and obtained legal advice, and with that advice created the Constitution and Byelaws that has governed all aspects of the management of the LAS Benevolent Fund since the start year of 1966.
