The Order of St John
St John Ambulance Cymru are an independent Priory of the Order of St John, which is a working Order of Chivalry of the British Crown and a modern organisation delivering first aid, healthcare, and support services around the world.
The Order promotes physical, mental and spiritual health, and resilience in more than 40 countries around the world, delivering its charitable activities through local St John Ambulance organisations, including our Priory in Wales, and the St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital in Jerusalem.
The motto of the Order is “Pro Fide and Pro Utilitate Hominum” (For the Faith and in the Service of Humanity). This underpins the work of St John worldwide, including here in Wales.
Each year St John organisations train more than 2 million people in first aid and other healthcare activities and worldwide, collectively treat over 1.2 million and reach more than 2.5 million beneficiaries with our services.
