First Aider

No one should die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it. St John Ambulance teaches people first aid so they can be the difference between life and death, and you can help us do this.

As a first aid volunteer you will be trained to a high standard to provide first aid treatment to patients at events covered by St John Ambulance in the community, at concerts, sports events etc. at local, regional and national level.

No previous training is required – it will all be provided – we just look for a desire to help people and the readiness to deal with situations that can be distressing. As a first aider, you will be expected to attend the unit meeting night during the week and then duties on a weekend.

This role is exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitations Offenders Act.

For more information please contact Area Manager, Rob Williams via email
