St John Ambulance

Nothing is more tragic than a life lost needlessly. Yet every year, too many people die in situations where first aid could have given them the chance to live.

St John Ambulance teaches people first aid so that they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

As the nation’s leading first aid charity, we teach more people first aid than any other organisation. Each year, more than half a million people complete a St John Ambulance training course, either through their workplace or in the community. We teach life saving skills to young people in schools and through our youth programmes, and equip members of the public with information that can save lives.

Our volunteers provide first aid assistance at public events, pre-hospital clinical care, and emergency ambulance support to the statutory services in times of crisis.

We also campaign to raise awareness of the importance of first aid, equip the public with first aid information, and encourage everyone to join us in our cause.
