What do Saint John Ambulance do?
St John Ambulance is a volunteer-led, charitable non-governmental organisation dedicated to the teaching and practice of first aid . It raises awareness and teaches people life saving skills such as CPR, which anyone can be in the situation to have to do.
Why is this charity so important?
St John people are there when communities need us most and this has never been truer than in 2020. They have provided our biggest mobilisation in peacetime to deliver the health and care people need and ensure the NHS was not overwhelmed. They have also contributed over 200,000 hours of volunteer patient-facing care in the year so far, doing everything from providing trained ambulance crews to supporting hospital emergency departments and Covid wards with clinical care volunteers.
