441 Royal Arsenal & Woolwich Division meet on Wednesdays from 8pm to 10pm
We believe that it’s absolutely unacceptable that so many people die needlessly – because no one could give them first aid when they needed it.
St John Ambulance teaches people first aid – about 800,000 last year alone – so that they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
And we teach people who become our volunteers; who offer their skills and time to be the difference right in the heart of their community – at public events, as first responders or providing back up to local ambulance services.
As a charity, we’re committed to making sure more people can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. To do that, we need your help.
As the leading first aid charity, St John Ambulance relies on the work of dedicated volunteers to provide first aid treatment and training throughout the country.
With more than 45,000 volunteers, over half of which are under 25, St John Ambulance is able to treat 550 casualties per day, or 200,000 per year.
All without government funding.
Each year St John Ambulance volunteers donate 4 million voluntary hours to ensure the public’s safety and enjoyment at events.
In addition to providing first aid services, St John Ambulance volunteers are also involved in transporting patients to appointments, providing respite care to the elderly and working with youth on personal development.
Our volunteers are people who dedicate one hour or one lifetime to providing first aid to those who need it
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.
Our mission is:
- Provide an effective and efficient charitable first aid service to local communities
- Provide training and products to satisfy first aid and related health and safety needs for all of society
- Encourage personal development for people of all ages, through training and by membership of our organisation.

- Welcome and value those who offer their talents and time for the service of others
- Work for, with and in the community
- Respect the trust placed upon them
- Encourage and bring out the best in each other
