How your support will help us save lives
Every year, too many people die in situations where first aid
could have given them the chance to live. Yet less than 10% of the
population is trained in first aid.
St John Ambulance believes that no one should die because they
needed first aid and didn’t get it. That’s why we’re committed to
teaching life saving skills to as many people as possible.
As a charity, we rely on the support of people like you to help
us continue our vital work, teaching first aid in schools and
communities, and providing people with access to free first aid
information and guidance.
