Thank you for visiting our Just Giving page
Aviation Action, a charity created to help support the mental health of its colleagues in the aviation industry and relies on donations to provide this help and support to people who have had their lives turned upside down in recent months as a result of COVID 19.
Help support our Peer Support Programme
Aviation Action’s peer support programme allows people to share common experiences with a like minded aviation professional.
The Aviation Action peer support programme gives participants the chance to speak openly and honestly with someone who truly understands and can help in your personal and professional life. Catching up with an “Aviation Buddy” can be meeting for coffee, having a phone call or even through text messages.
All of the Aviation Action peer supporters go through an extensive training programme to ensure that each supporter has the tools that they need to support people in the industry.
Peer Supporter Training Cost: £100
Current Number of Peer Supporters: 100
Support literature, webinars and administration for peer support: £5000
Therefore we need your help to raise £15,000 to get all our peer supporters the training they need to help them fulfil their role within the charity!

The peer support program is making a difference in so many lives. Joe, in airside operations, recently said,
“I would really encourage anyone who could benefit from Aviation Action to get in touch. We are extremely fortunate as a sector to have this resource, and it makes me proud to be part of this industry. I’m not aware of any other sectors where this level and quality of peer-to-peer support is being offered to all, free of charge.”

What you can do
The Run the Runways campaign will run (no pun intended) throughout December and will see participants run, walk or cycle the length of a UK runway each day. People all over the UK are getting involved in the Run The Runway Challenge and we need you to sponsor them for their incredible efforts to help us get to our target of £15,000.
Every penny of your donation will go directly to supporting these peer support efforts, so please sponsor an amazing Run The Runways team today!
