St John Ambulance

St John Ambulance Jersey is the islands first aid charity, training approximately 5% of the island population each year in some form of first aid training. We provide first aid at public events, and train young people in first aid and good citizenship. The charity has community programmes operating in schools and provides a Carers Support Programme to those informal carers looking after a loved one or friend. Our assets and resources can be used by the States of Jersey (SoJ) in a major or critical incident to add resilience to the limited island resources. During the COVID-19 pandemic our fleet of four modern ambulances and support vehicles, our trained volunteers and our HQ building were made available to the SoJ and we performed several roles supporting the islands in the fight against COVID-19. Our volunteers staffed online ambulances, drove nurses to addresses to perform swab testing, provided PPE training to the hospital staff so that their own trainers could be used on other training and we performed antibody testing on key workers enabling them to continue working. In 2021 our volunteers continue to help with the vaccination programme at the centre and driving vaccinators to homes when people cannot travel. St John managed the post vaccination area where members of the public sit to be observed for acute anaphylaxis and provides first aid at the venue. St John also provides operational crews to frontline ambulances. We are a charity and rely on donations and from any surplus we generate from our commercial first aid courses which has been greatly effected by the social distancing requirements of the pandemic.
