Help us help you!

St John Ambulance ACT is a not for profit community based organisation that prides itself on delivering quality products and services to the ACT and surrounding region. Our goal is to make first aid training a part of everybody’s life.

We do this through quality training and provision of first aid services by volunteers at front line community events. In addition to this we train in excess of 10,000 school children each year in basic first aid at no cost to either the child or the school.

Our ability to do this work is weighted heavily by the support we receive from commercial organisations that use our products and services

The donation you make or the fee (commercial events) you pay allows St John Ambulance ACT to continue its work in Canberra and surrounding regions of the ACT.
