Why get involved with us?

St John Cymru is Wales' leading first aid charity and we are looking for people to Get involved and help us continue to be there for Wales for another 100 years or more.

Attend an event

A fun way to get involved with St John Cymru is to attend or take part in an event.

There's an event for everyone - check out our events page for more information and to see what's coming up. 


Celebrate with us by raising funds to help St John Cymru continue to be there for as long as possible. You could take on a sponsored challenge, organise your own event, fundraise at work, school or with friends and much more. Check out the centenary fundraising section of our microsite for ideas. We can help with your fundraising ideas and may be able to provide you with fundraising materials. 


We are looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to join our team. You'll meet new people, learn new skills, see behind the scenes and help to save lives. Our volunteering page is packed full of information about the types of roles available and how you can apply to join Wales' leading first aid charity as a volunteer.

Learn first aid

We offer community first aid training, first aid for individuals as well as commercial.

See our replica WW1 ambulance

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund we will be taking our replica WW1 Morris ambulance out and about across Wales, to a number of events this year. We will be showcasing our 100 year history alongside this vehicle; which shows what a WW1 ambulance that St John Cymru may have used in 1918 would have looked like.
