Volunteering - ambulance services

    I am interested in volunteering with one of the ambulance services. I'm doing a bit of Googling and I see there's a few options - St John's, Order of Malta, Red Cross etc. Is there any real difference between them or is it all much of a muchness?

    I'd be starting off with only a very basic level of first aid, so would need to obviously do a bit of training first.

    Thanks for any info!!

    What area do you live in. Have you checked who has a presence locally?

    I recommend you do a first aid course anyway, it prepares you for the basics of an emergency that can occur at any time.

    I am a member of an organisation. We run courses and welcome new members. You can train up as much as you wish and the sky is the limit.
