Why St Andrew’s First Aid?

We are Scotland’s only dedicated first aid charity – our mission is to create a nation of life-savers. Our first aid event cover in Scotland is a community service, with all monies raised sent straight back to our programme recruiting and training First Aiders.

We work with you from the event planning stages to a safe execution. Our experienced First Aiders are trained to handle any health emergency.


Annually, over 20,000 people learning life-saving techniques at our training centres. We cover first aid for Scotland’s largest events: TRNSMT, Bellahouston Summer Sessions and Edinburgh’s Hogmany.


All our First Aiders train through our nationally accredited training organisation. On top of this, they meet each week to practice, refresh and utilise their first aid skill sets in preparation of any situation.

Big and Small Events

We accommodate one-off or recurring events of all sizes, seven days a week. For example, festivals, firework displays, trade shows, and sporting events.

Pricing and Inclusions

Our first aid event cover in Scotland is typically priced per hour/per volunteer.  We determine the number of First Aiders required during the booking process, depending on risk-level and event size (two First Aiders are required as minimum). Event cover includes high quality equipment: defibrillators, carry chairs, wheelchairs, stretchers and comprehensive first aid supplies. Plus, our first aid event cover volunteers are insured by Public Liability Insurance.

Additional Resources

For larger or high-risk events, we provide first aid cycle teams – for a speedier response – and mobile first aid posts (MFAP).
