St John is run and staffed by people who are passionate about serving their communities and caring for fellow New Zealanders. We are a charity and have a volunteer ethos, with paid and volunteer members working side by side. Those who work for St John are driven by the desire to help their local communities by providing essential health-related services. St John is at the frontline of medical response providing Ambulance Services throughout New Zealand. We are also part of the broader landscape of health and social care, through our provision of first aid training, event medical services, medical alarms, youth programmes and a wide range of community programmes.
