Our First Aid Services volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary things
St John Ambulance Australia is the premier provider of first aid services at public events and emergencies. Each year our 10,000 First Aid Services volunteers, in their familiar black and white uniforms, care for around 80,000 sick and injured people and provide over 600,000 hours of service to their communities.

First Aid Services volunteering is for people of all ages
If you are aged 8-18 years you are invited to join our Cadets program. St John Ambulance Cadets provide First Aid services to their community while developing valuable life skills - first aid, teamwork, management and leadership - just to name a few. There are heaps of opportunities to meet new people, challenge yourself and be recognised for your achievements. For more information click here.
If you are aged 18 years or over you can join as an Adult Member. The majority of our Adult Members are involved in delivering First Aid, First Responder and Advanced Responder services at public events and during emergencies. Health Care Professionals are most welcome to join. In addition, there are lots of non-clinical roles available for adults including managing Cadet and Adult Divisions, providing logistics and supporting our volunteers. We provide all training, support and insurance so that you can be confident in your volunteering role.
