St John Ambulance teaches people first aid so that they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. We teach young people in schools and through our youth programmes. We teach employees for their workplace, and we teach people in the community. Some become St John Ambulance volunteers, providing first aid at events, acting as first responders to NHS emergency calls in the community, or supporting their local ambulance service.
As the nation’s leading first aid charity, we teach more people first aid than any other organisation: each year, more than 800,000 complete a St John Ambulance training course. Even so, fewer than one in 10 people have been trained in first aid.
