About first aid


At St John Ambulance, we save lives.

 

We do it by teaching people first aid: easy-to-learn, practical techniques that you can pick up in the time it takes to do your weekly shop. And we do it by making sure that our volunteers are always on hand to care for people in need at public events, and out in their community.

 

First aid gives people something amazing: the confidence to do the right thing when it really counts. With first aid, anyone can be the difference between life and death.
