About Us

Our Mission

To make first aid a part of everybody’s life with at least one person educated, equipped, and prepared to provide first aid in every home and workplace, and at every public gathering.

St John Ambulance Australia is a charitable, non-profit, humanitarian organisation whose primary focus is teaching first aid. St John has been helping the Australian community for more than 138 years, and our members and volunteers continue to be passionate about their service to humanity, and building resilient communities through relief of sickness, distress, suffering and danger.

St John is active in all states and territories, providing:

  • volunteer opportunities to work within their community
  • quality first aid training (which allows St John to provide free services such as the free First Aid in Schools program, which, in 2019, saw almost 330,000 primary school children awarded with their first aid certificate)
  • event health and community health care services
