About St John Ambulance | Everyday Heroes


About 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 - in the community, for the workplace and to young people - so that they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. Some of those we train become St John Ambulance volunteers, providing first aid at events, acting as first responders to NHS emergency calls in their community, or supporting their local ambulance service.

As the nation’s leading first aid charity, we teach more people first aid than any other organisation.
