How your money helps

St John Ambulance NSW is a profit-for-purpose organisation. Every donation counts. When you support St John Ambulance NSW, you’re actively helping us build more resilient communities.

Support our volunteers

Our volunteers are always there when you need them most – 1 in 3 St John Ambulance NSW volunteers have provided life-saving CPR. Your donation has a direct life-saving impact, equipping our dedicated team with the necessary equipment, skills and supplies.

Developing future leaders

St John Ambulance NSW wouldn’t be what it is today without the expertise, commitment and hard work of the young people on our team. Our Junior and Cadet program combines first aid and youth-oriented activities, to develop self-reliant and confident young people who go on to be valued members of their community.

Emergency response

Through bushfires, floods, and the pandemic, your donation helps us to continue to support local communities in preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters and other emergencies. From 2020-2022, St John Ambulance NSW members provided more than 300,000 hours of frontline support for the COVID-19 pandemic.

First Aid in Schools

We believe first aid education should be accessible to everyone. Our First Aid in Schools program is free for all primary school students across NSW, and your donation helps us continue this service to build confidence in young people in providing first aid.  


Naomi's story

When Naomi Martin suffered a cardiac arrest at Qudos Bank Arena in 2013, St John Ambulance NSW volunteers performed CPR for 15 minutes before shocking her with a defibrillator four times - and they saved her life.
