Gifts in Wills save livesCommunity First Responder

Help us to continue our vital work by including a gift in your Will to St John Ambulance.

Gifts in Wills are a very special way of continuing your support far into the future. Your support can enable us to continue our life saving work by creating a nation of first aiders, supporting the emergency services and providing essential first aid within communities and at events. We want to continue being the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

We understand that you may wish to provide for those closest to you first, however, even just 1% of the remainder of your estate could make a huge difference to funding our vital life saving work for the future.

How do I include a gift in my Will?

To do this you will need:

  • • Our registered charity number: 1077265/1
  • • Our registered address: St John Ambulance, 27 St John's Lane, London, EC1M 4BU

If you already have a Will then you'll just need to speak with a solicitor about making a change to your existing Will, this is called a codicil.

You can request our free Will guide packed with helpful information about how to make your Will.


We understand that some of our supporters want their gift to go to their local St John Ambulance unit or region.

We advise in these situations that although possible, if the unit disbands, we may be unable to benefit from your gift. Therefore, we recommend that you make your gift to our National Headquarters.
