Our volunteers can be first on the scene of medical emergency such as a cardiac arrest or can teach someone what to do if they find themselves in that situation – that’s why a donation to St John is so important. A gift today will help train and equip more lifesaving volunteers.

Ask me how your donations help us to save lives

By supporting the cost of our vehicles, equipment and volunteer training so we can deliver lifesaving first aid in the community. With your help, St John volunteers continue to be at the heart of our communities, helping to treat and support people at some of the most vulnerable moments of their lives. 

We also have our own emergency vehicles such as our new box-body ambulances which can experience substantial wear and tear, requiring regular maintenance and complete renewal on a 7-10 year rolling programme.

St John volunteers have played a key role in the COVID-19 emergency and the vaccination programme to help get the country back on its feet. Our volunteers have given over an incredible 1 million hours of COVID care since the beginning of the pandemic.

How your support can make a difference

£25 could help a young person save the life of a loved one: 

St John’s Badger and Cadet groups for young people aged 7 to 18 develop confident and competent young people prepared to step up in emergencies and save lives; many go on to become adult volunteers or take up a career in the health service.  

£50 could help us urgently train or upskill a volunteer: 

Help us urgently upskill a health volunteer to give extra support in the community. As the threat of COVID continues, we urgently need more volunteers with the extra skills required to work safely with patients.

£100 could help us continue to respond quickly to emergencies:

Whilst COVID is still a threat to our daily lives, your support could be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. The success of our emergency response is based on St John Ambulance’s robust and well-organised systems behind the scenes –  our volunteers work as logistics coordinators, communications operators, call operators. We constantly invest in these people and the kit they need.  

£250+ will support the future of St John Ambulance’s work through COVID-19 and beyond:

Our role in your communities and across the country has never been more vital and with your help we will save lives. Your support will enable us to continue to be the nation’s leading community health and first aid charity.
