Welcome to UEA First Aid Society!

Student Volunteering with St John Ambulance

  • We offer weekly training sessions every Monday 6pm-7:30pm in C.Hall 01.20 covering all aspects of first aid, volunteering and event first aid opportunities. Our sessions provide lots of opportunities for hands on experience to practice everything from basic first aid skills to airway management in a safe and practical environment

    We're also a student volunteering unit operating as part of St John Ambulance, the nation's leading first aid charity. Our University unit provide amazing cover right here on campus at all of the clubnights, gigs, open days and more! We also get involved with bigger events like football, the London Marathon, Notting Hill Carnival and Pride!

    Weekly training runs with an introductory presentation led by someone on committee – we’re all students but also part of St John Ambulance and trained as First Aiders, Advanced First Aiders and all the way up to Ambulance Crew

  • Interactive

    We break off into smaller groups during training so that you have the chance to go at your own pace and practice as much as you want, with support, guidance and the occasional Kahoot (which we take very seriously!)

    Large casualty simulations in the LCR are a great way to practice skills in the most realistic environment possible. Smaller scenarios in weekly training mean you can practice what you just learnt in a safe enviornment
