About Everyday Heroes

St John Ambulance Everyday Heroes Awards

Every day, St John Ambulance is saving lives and supporting your communities. Yet despite our efforts, we know there are still too many similar situations happening where first aid response is missing. The outcomes are not so positive. We need the public's support to do more across the country and create many more Everyday Heroes.

Everyday Heroes Awards

The Everyday Heroes Awards showcases the incredible impact that St John Ambulance has in society. This is through the actions of our everyday heroes in local communities, workplaces, and through young people.

The awards are split into four categories:

  • Community Heroes
  • Young Heroes
  • Workplace Heroes
  • Volunteer Heroes

Our Volunteer of the Year Award is included within the Volunteers Heroes category.

Our nominations have now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination!

'First aid is a really important skill; it's something that we all need. If everyone had that little bit of knowledge, they would have the confidence to save someone's life.'
