As we celebrate the positive impact young people have on our society, we send our appreciation and thanks to all our Cadets across the country.

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all our St John Fathers who give so much of their time, to the fathers who stay home so their partners can volunteer, to the fathers of our cadets who support, encourage and taxi our cadets around. You’re all part of the St John Ambulance family and we hope you all have a great day.

PPE thanks to UHL Rapid Innovation Unit

Many thanks to the Rapid Innovation Unit in University Hospital Limerick for the donation of PPE to us in St John Ambulance. Our logistics teams from Dublin and Cork collected this vital equipment from our Limerick centre this week for distribution to all our divisions. This equipment is vital to protect our volunteers and patients during the current situation. Companies like this are providing incredible support to the frontline and their contribution is a vital part of the battle to fight this war.

Donate to us

We receive no State funding. We are entirely dependent on contributions from the public and donations made to the Organisation for services rendered by our volunteer members.

All donations, however small, are therefore greatly appreciated.

Volunteer with us

We are always looking for bright and enthusiastic people who enjoy team work and want to learn new skills.

St John Ambulance is made up of volunteers from every walk in life, from those professionally involved with pre-hospital care to people who had no previous experience of first aid prior to joining the organisation.
