St John Ambulance supports Student Volunteering Week
This week we're celebrating and showcasing the work
of our amazing student volunteers
This week St John Ambulance are proud to be supporting Student
Volunteering Week. The week, organised by the National Union of
Students and Student Hubs, runs from 22nd-28th February and aims to
promote the great work of existing student volunteers and encourage
more students to get involved.
Throughout the week we will be thanking and show casing the work
of our 1500 St John Ambulance student volunteers, who are based in
52 university units around the country.
Our fantastic student volunteers gave over 60,000 hours of their
own time alongside demanding university courses last year, to help
us achieve our vision that no one should suffer for the lack of
trained first aiders. They have done this by providing first aid in
their communities, keeping people safe at events and raising
awareness of first aid on their campuses.
Adam Williams, Head of Volunteering said: ‘Student volunteers
contribute a significant amount of time, effort and commitment to
St John Ambulance, and we are fully committed to ensuring that we
continue to support our students to grow and develop. Over the next
couple of years we will be further developing our student
volunteering programme to support graduates, and provide further
opportunities for St John Ambulance to grow across universities and
