Volunteering for us
leading first aid charity, St John Ambulance
relies on the work of dedicated volunteers to provide first aid
treatment and training throughout the country.
With more than 45,000 volunteers, over
half of which are under 25, St John Ambulance is able to treat
550 casualties per day, or 200,000 per year.
All without government funding.
Each year St John Ambulance volunteers
donate 4 million voluntary hours to
ensure the public’s safety and enjoyment at events.
Volunteering with St John Ambulance is special. As an organisation it can offer so many opportunities in so many different areas, and you really do get a lot in return, I can’t see my self not being a member as I’ll always be able to give back something in return for all I have gained.

In addition to providing first aid services, St John Ambulance
volunteers are also involved in transporting patients to
appointments, providing respite care to the elderly and working
with youth on personal development.
Our volunteers are people who dedicate one hour or one lifetime
to providing first aid to those who need it.
