The Scottish First Aid Awards

Each year St Andrew’s First Aid recognises extraordinary people and organisations across Scotland who have performed outstanding acts of first aid and/or have gone above-and-beyond their legal first aid responsibilities to make their communities safer.

Last year’s Awards received a record-breaking number of nominations and we look forward to celebrating with each of the 2019 nominees later this year.

The Scottish First Aid Awards kick-off a full calendar of events across the country as part of Scottish First Aid Week (18 – 24 November 2019).
