We’ve supported people and communities across Wales since 1880. We existed before the NHS in Wales and provided the earliest medical support to those who were sick or injured.
Since March 2020, we’ve worked closely with Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust (WAST) and NHS Wales, increasing our capacity and developing new innovative ways of working to assist and relieve the overwhelming pressure on the frontline brought about by COVID-19.
We’ve helped by continuing to provide care and support to people when they’ve needed it most. This includes caring for people at Wales’ field hospitals, being there for people at vaccination centres and strengthening our Urgent Care Support within the ambulance service.
Now, in 2022, we continue performing a major role in strengthening community resilience and ensuring people are trained in first aid so they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
We fulfil key front-line roles to support vulnerable people, in addition to offering the opportunity for people from all backgrounds to develop their personal skills and confidence to support our charitable and income generating services whilst assisting their own career development.
As a charity, we partner with the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust and NHS Health Boards, providing ambulance support services in addition to delivering our Falls Response Service, helping people who’ve fallen at home, back to their feet.

Our focus is developing new, innovative services to help us achieve our mission of saving lives and enhancing the health and wellbeing of communities in Wales.

This is a hugely exciting time to join the Fundraising Department at St John Ambulance Cymru. Following substantial investment to grow the team, we are currently recruiting a number of new roles.
The Individual Giving & Legacy Manager will play a pivotal role in transforming the income generated to achieve our mission to save lives and enhance the health and well-being of our Welsh communities.
