We’re looking for First Aid Community Advocates

Volunteer with the nation’s leading first aid charity to raise awareness of the importance of first aid and help save lives, in your local community.

Are you passionate about your local community and love meeting new people? Then we'd love you to join our team of First Aid Community Advocates. You'll be helping to raise awareness of the importance of learning first aid and increase access to first aid information throughout your local community.

By motivating people to learn life saving skills, you will contribute to building a stronger and more resilient community where people have the confidence to do the right thing when it really matters. You'll do this by organising talks and demonstrations at community centres, local events and groups.

You don’t need any first aid experience, we’ll give you all the training and support that you need. The role is flexible and volunteers can commit however many hours that suits their lifestyle.



'Our First Aid Community Advocates will enable us to reach further into communities, showing the difference access to first aid can make.'

- Mark Farmer, Director of First Aid Services
