Description of charity's activities and outcomes
In 2019, St John Ambulance (NSW) continued to focus on our mission of saving lives through first aid, and enabling individuals, workplaces, and communities to have confidence in a crisis.

More businesses, homes, and public places are safer because they chose to learn first aid or purchase vital equipment through St John (NSW). We trained more than 56,000 people in first aid courses – from essential skills such as CPR to advanced courses for high-risk workplaces. We enabled communities to be more resilient through the provision of defibrillators, first aid kits, and personal protection equipment.

Our volunteers worked tirelessly to keep people safe at thousands of events across the State, by providing medical support to those in need. Whether it was the iconic Royal Sydney Easter Show, a community sporting event or a high-risk music festival – our volunteers were on-hand to provide critical first aid support.

As a registered Social Trader, customers know that by choosing to work with St John (NSW), they are actively helping to create positive social outcomes. The surplus from our commercial activities were invested back into our community programs enabling us to provide:
• Free education programs to more than 11,000 school students across the state
• Training and equipment our volunteers needed to be ready in the event of any emergency.
• A safe and supportive environment for over 1,000 young people to learn about first aid and the skills to become leaders within their communities.
