About Everyday Heroes

St John Ambulance Everyday Heroes Awards

The St John Ambulance Everyday Heroes Awards is a special awards programme celebrating the incredible stories of ordinary people who have used first aid to save a life. The awards are also a chance to recognise individuals and businesses that have championed the cause, helping to create more first aiders in our communities.

Each year, too many people die in situations where first aid could have given them a chance to live. Thanks to the knowledge and heroic actions of some inspiring individuals and organisations more people are alive today.

Whether directly using first aid to save a life or going the extra mile to champion the cause, our nominees are helping to reduce the number of needless deaths each year – making them everyday heroes in our communities.

Nominations for the 2017 St John Ambulance Everyday Heroes Awards have now closed.
