Want to get involved but not sure about being a duty First Aider?
St Andrew's First Aid benefits from the help of many people who may not have the full First Aid qualifications or don't want to be a uniformed First Aider.
Arranging cover for events, organising First Aid courses, keeping membership records up to date... Running a volunteer company requires a lot of organisation and a good deal of paperwork. We need administrators to help keep our operations running smoothly. Do you have experience of managing accounts? Our Treasurers help our local companies to keep their books up to date and once a year to file their annual returns.
We believe it's never too early to start developing life-saving skills - and that learning should be fun! That's why our Youth development programmes provide an interactive and safe environment for our Cadets ( aged 11 to 16) and Badgers (aged 6-10) to get involved and find out what St Andrew's is all about. If you are over 18 and would like to help our young people develop their knowledge, practice their skills and have a good time then this could be the role for you.
Uniforms, First Aid kits, training materials and travel expenses - keeping our volunteers trained, equipped and ready for duty needs money. Each of our volunteer companies manages its own funds and expenses and being a fundraiser means you could help to keep those vital contributions coming in - bucket collections, charity events, or encouraging support from local businesses... there are many ways our fundraisers help us to keep going.
At St Andrew's First Aid we're understandably proud of what we do and our role in Scottish communities and we'd love you to help us shout about it! Getting our achievements talked about in the press and on local radio, advertising our local courses and contributing stories to our national website - these are all ways in which you could help our volunteers get the recognition and the support that they deserve.
