First Aider

The central Manchester unit is currently looking for new volunteers to join their front line team of first aiders on events in and around Manchester city centre. With a wide variety of events covered by this unit, it is one of the fastest growing units in our district. The central Manchester unit meets once a week at Faulkner house on a Tuesday 19:30-21:00, it is required that you attend at least twice a month to ensure that you refresh your training and are aware of the activities and events that are available to you. You will be expected to attend a minimum of two events a month.

As a First Aider at Events, you’ll help St John Ambulance provide first aid at large and small events within the community. You’ll be part of a team of volunteers delivering help where it’s needed, dealing with everything from a sprained ankle to a cardiac arrest.

The experience you gain could lead to more advanced roles, including patient transport, cycle response, advanced first aid and emergency response. You’ll make a real difference to your community and have a huge impact on the nation’s health. 

As a First Aider at Events, you’ll get a huge sense of satisfaction and pride delivering an essential service. It’s great for you, great for your community and great for our nation, and it requires only a small commitment of your time.

We will also provide you with a supportive environment while you are volunteering with us. Information about our volunteer roles are included in the role descriptions.
