If you have used your first aid skills to help in an emergency in the past six months, your story could help us raise awareness of vital first aid skills. Your story could be used in the media, on our website and social media channels, or in our publicity, appeals, and campaigns.

Your story doesn't need to have been a life or death situation. We're also looking for stories that are recent, or unusual, where you're still in touch with the person you helped. This is so we can also talk to them and find out how first aid made a difference when they needed it.

If your story can help us, a member of our External Communications team will get in touch, using the contact details you give on this form.

Please be assured that we will only share your story with third parties after checking with you first, and we will never pass on your contact information to anyone outside of St John Ambulance without your permission. If you have any questions, please email pr@sja.org.uk or phone 020 7234 4214.
