St John Ambulance Cadets
‘Being a St John Ambulance Cadet
has made me more confident and taught me that, no matter what, if I
put my mind to something I can achieve it. It has allowed me to
become a young woman who is ready to try anything and who wants to
succeed.’ – Shannon Dean

learn valuable life skills.

interactive programme, working towards your Grand Prior Award and
