Where does your money go?

As the nation’s leading first aid charity, we believe that everyone should get the chance to learn how to save a life.

Where does your money go?The funds you raise are essential in helping us to provide first aid training to people in schools and communities across the country. With your help we’re building a nation of life savers.

£25 could pay for 200 first aid guides, providing essential advice on how to treat five common conditions where first aid could be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

£40 could pay for an hour of first aid training – long enough to learn how to put someone who is unresponsive into the recovery position. £80 could cover the operational costs of a first aid response unit for one hour.

£120 could pay for a St John Ambulance trainer to teach first aid to a class of 32 children.

£150 could pay for a first aid training mannequin, used to teach resuscitation. £300 could pay for a full day’s training for a group of 12.

£600 could train one of our first aid trainers.

£1000 could pay for an automated external defibrillator (AED), which can prove vital to the resuscitation process following a heart attack.
