Join the IAA

Thank you for your interest in joining the Association.

IAA Membership gives the public, event organisers and commissioners added reassurance when it comes to choosing a viable and sustainable independent ambulance provider. As the voice of the regulated independent sector, we represent the collective view and position of our Members and speak on their behalf to government departments, regulators, the media and other opinion formers.

We keep members updated on the latest issues and developments likely to impact on the sector and work closely with members and stakeholders to develop and maintain standards.

Eligibility is restricted to those companies who meet all our Membership Criteria. We share with qualified parties, on request, the IAA status of a provider for procurement purposes.

IAA Associate Members in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (where there is no equivalent regulatory body to the Care Quality Commission) are required to comply with our Membership Criteria 2, 3 and 4.

We have 5 Bands for Members, based on self-declared ambulance related turnover.

Band Turnover Subscription
Associate n/a £365
Band A up to £500k £500
Band B £500k – £2m £800
Band C £2m – £5m £1,600
Band D £5m – £15m £3,700
Band E * £15m + £4,800

Our operating year is April to March and subscriptions can be paid over 10 moths; if you join part-way through the year, you will be invoiced for the remaining months.

If you’re interested in being a member of the Association and working with us to influence and shape the future provision of ambulance related services then please complete and submit the online membership application form.

Your application will be reviewed by our Quality Lead and Board of Directors, and when approved, you will receive an email with an invoice for your subscription.

If you’re not sure about joining then do feel free to call 0208 457 2788 or email to find out more about what we do.

∗ Band E Members are eligible for a seat on the IAA Board
