Your help is needed to start fulfilling final wishes

Ambulance Wish Western Australia has started fundraising to commission their first ‘Wish Ambulance’ – the vehicle which will allow the charity to start fulfilling final wishes for immobile, terminally ill West Australian patients.

A ‘Wish Ambulance‘ is a vehicle specially designed or converted to transport immobile, terminally ill patients to fulfil their wishes. Wish Ambulance design varies around the world but there are several similarities – the ability of provide excellent patient care; tinted windows to allow privacy while allowing patients to view their journey and a comfortable ride, often with electronic stretchers with specialised mattresses. Medical equipment is often hidden from sight but easily accessible if required. 

We aim to start fulfilling wishes as soon as the Wish Ambulance is operational – we have already started to receive formal applications from volunteers wanting to help fulfil patients’ final wishes in WA and have already developed our policies and procedures to ensure excellent clinical care. The next step is to fundraise and commission the first ‘Wish Ambulance’ for Western Australia.

Our Wish ambulance appeal poster can be downloaded here – please consider displaying a copy in your workplace, sporting club or other organisation. Other ways to help include setting up a fundaiser – our fundraising page contains some suggestions and we also have our Sponsorship and Partnership programme, which was launched at the the start of National Palliative Care Week 2020.

Every dollar helps us fulfil final wishes. We run entirely on charitable donations and are managed by volunteers. All donations go to running Ambulance Wish Western Australia and fulfilling last wishes.
