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.

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

Event First Aiders Potential volunteering locations are: Ampthill and Flitwick Bedford John Bunyan Bedford Pilgrim Biggleswade Dunstable Luton Hemel Hempstead Hertford Hitchin and Stevenage Letchworth and Royston Potters Bar Rickmansworth St Albans Watford
