We have lots of volunteering opportunities across our twelve areas and welcome people of all ages, backgrounds and faiths.
Volunteer Patient Transport Drivers
St John Scotland is always looking for Patient Transport drivers in any of the four areas in which the service is provided. They are Dumfries and Galloway, Angus and Dundee, Fife and Perth and Kinross.
St John Scotland proudly works alongside the Scottish Ambulance Service and local NHS Trusts to provide this service for people attending oncology and renal clinics. All passengers are referred to us by the NHS or Scottish Ambulance Service.
Volunteers must be over the age of 25 and under 70, hold a full driving licence and be in good health with a reasonable level of fitness. Applicants will be required to undergo a PVG disclosure check, and all correspondence will be conducted via email. Training is provided, and there is also a three month probationary period. St John Scotland reserves the right to refuse an application.
If you are available at least one set day per week on a regular basis, enjoy driving and have great people skills, we'd love to hear from you. In your email, please include your full name, address, post code and telephone number.
Volunteer CPR Trainers
Becoming a St John Scotland CPR volunteer is easy. Once you’ve let us know you are interested in volunteering, we will arrange for you to be trained in CPR. You may be trained by a St John Scotland CPR volunteer, or a partner of the Save a Life initiative, such as the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service or the British Heart Foundation.
You can be trained individually, or as part of a larger group. For example, if you are part of a church group and several people expressed an interest in becoming volunteer CPR trainers, group training can be facilitated. In some instances, you may be invited to attend another St John Scotland CPR event to be trained.
Once you have been trained, we want you to pass on your skills. You can do this in two ways: by leading your own CPR training sessions, or volunteering to assist other CPR training sessions. If you would prefer to assist other CPR training sessions, St John Scotland will contact you when there is an event planned in your area. We may also, with your permission, pass your contact details to Save a Life for Scotland who will invite you along to volunteer at CPR training sessions hosted by other partners.
St John Scotland has a dedicated First Responder team in Angus and Dundee who work with the Scottish Ambulance Service to deal with emergency situations in the locality until the arrival of paramedics.
If you are interested in becoming a First Responder in Angus and Dundee, please include any relevant experience in your email.
