About St John Ambulance
We are St John Ambulance, the charity that steps forward in the
moments that matter to save lives and support communities. Our
vision is for communities that save lives and serve each other
through volunteering for health and first aid.
Our highly trained volunteers keep people safe at events
nationwide, springing into action to help with medical incidents
and emergencies. We also help the NHS by responding to some 999
calls as well as transporting patients safely.
And every year around 500,000 people, including children and
young people, learn how to save a life through our first aid
We have saved lives and relieved suffering for over 140 years,
but we still have much to do. Find out more about
