Face-to-Face fundraising St John AmbulanceFace-to-face fundraiser

Face-to-face fundraising brings us closer to the day when everyone who needs it, receives first aid from those around them.

As a charity, face-to-face fundraising is very important to us, because regular donations mean we can plan for the future.

We currently have two different fundraising agencies working on behalf of St John Ambulance, they do an amazing job raising funds so we can continue to deliver our services, making a huge difference to many lives in the UK.

All fundraisers who represent St John Ambulance are highly trained and follow best practice guidance and industry standards, imposed by the Institute of Fundraising (IOF) and the Fundraising Regulator.

Door-to-door fundraisingWesser logo private site fundraising

Door-to-door fundraisers are fundraisers wearing St John Ambulance t-shirts and badges (with coats and body warmers in the winter), who visit households in England and Wales. They go from door-to-door, talking to people about our work and asking them to consider supporting us by giving a monthly, quarterly, or annual donation by direct debit.

In England alone, we have over 150,000 supporters who began supporting our vital first aid work after speaking to one of our door-to-door fundraisers.

Like many other charities, we also use a professional fundraising agency to help us raise the most funds we can. For over 18 years, we have been fundraising door-to-door with Wesser Ltd and have raised over £32 million from our loyal door-to-door supporters across the country.

We also have fundraisers in private sites across the UK, such as shopping centres, supermarkets, shop foyers and occasionally directly outside of permitted shops.

Personal Fundraising Services (PFS) are our new private site fundraising agency, they are highly respected in the face-to-face industry. PFS request permission directly from the building/land owners to fundraise on our behalf.
