We are St John Ambulance Cymru and we are Wales’ leading first aid charity.
Established in 1918, in our time we’re proud to have provided the first ambulance service for Wales and to say that our volunteers have been there for some of the country’s toughest times; from supporting at the Aberfan disaster, but also for some of our best – like being pitch side caring for supporters as Wales won their 10th Grand Slam.
Supported by over 4,000 volunteers, we continue to deliver frontline services including first aid treatment, training and transport in the heart of Welsh communities, vital support to our emergency services when they need us and much more. Every year caring for over 9,000 people who needed us.
We believe, young people are our future and we're proud to provide opportunities and youth programmes for children and young people; with over half of our volunteers under the age of 18. Our programmes teach vital first aid skills, develop young people’s aspirations and enhance their education; providing the perfect springboard for our healthcare professionals of the future. We create an environment where people can grow and learn from an early age.
We're also part of something much bigger and are an independent Priory of the Order of St John, a Royal Order of Chivalry.
