St John Ambulance NSW is a proud volunteer based organisation and we’re committed to saving lives. We are self-funded and as such we receive limited government funding.
In their unmistakable green uniform, our Event Health Service volunteers are the most recognised face of St John NSW.
In 2017, we attended 5,326 events and emergencies and provided first aid and medical care to 12,118 people. By responding to people in need before emergency services arrive, we are able to reduce demand on the broader health system – many patients are able to return home following our care.
We are committed to promoting the importance of first aid in our community and believe there is no better place to start than in our schools. Empowering young people with life-saving knowledge improves local communities and families by making them more resilient, stronger and safer.
The First Aid in Schools program is a free initiative offered to primary school students. Children in Years 3-6 are equipped with life-long first aid skills they can use in the event of an accident or emergency.
Your donation ensures that our volunteers have the right tools and equipment they need to respond to a medical emergency.
