About Us

Our Vision is:

Everyone who needs it should receive first aid from those around them. No one should suffer for the lack of trained first aiders.

St John Ambulance Jersey became a dependent Commandery in 2012 responsible for its own financial matters but still following the charitable purposes of the parent organisation in the UK. We are an inclusive organisation and provide services to all persons irrespective of race, creed or class.

There is no States of Jersey funding for St John Ambulance. Our income is from donations by several generous sponsors, and from any surplus we make delivering first aid courses in the workplace. We have an Appeals Committee which raises some funding through organising events.

We have a fleet of four modern ambulances and two support vehicles which have all been provided by generous donors. In 2017 our operational members attended 167 events, treated 336 casulaties and performed 5,129 hours of voluntary duty. Our vehicles covered 1,847 miles the equivalent of driving around the entire island 39 times.

In 2017 there were 11 youth groups, made up of 5 Badger setts (7 – 10 year olds); 5 Cadet groups (10 - 17 year olds) and 1 Youth group (14 – 17 year olds). Around 21 schools now participate in the programme to teach first aid to young people. The role has become key to first aid education in schools and we are requested to help many other young people organisations, charities and education establishments in ensuring young people learn first aid.

In 2017 7,308 people received some form of first aid training from the charity which represents 7% of the population of Jersey.

In total all of our members in 2017 provided 23,531 hours of voluntary service.
