Thanks to our volunteers, Chipping Sodbury and Yate St John Ambulance division has been supplying First Aid to local events for several years, from a variety of Athletics at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex to Horton fell runs, Gymkhanas, carnivals and Heritage events.
Providing this vital First Aid is a rewarding and often challenging experience. St John Ambulance as an organisation has helped Badgers, Cadets and Adults to achieve many social and fundamental life skills. Its members are vital to the organisation and in return; members achieve qualifications and confidence and a whole new network of friends.

The board consists of young people coming together to explore issues such as internet safety, missing children, and the way services work with young people. Members can achieve a volunteering award, which can be used as part of DofE.
It allows young people to voice their opinion and make changes to things that affect the communities we live in.
We meet regularly with senior management and councillors to share our opinions and views and have a say in the development of the service. We also keep them up to date with young people’s issues.
We have young people representing each area of South Gloucestershire, aged between 13 – 19 (25 for young people with learning difficulties and/ or disabilities).
