St John Cymru Wales launches new Llantrisant division

15th September 2016

St John Cymru Wales is launching a new division in the Llantrisant area as part of a drive to have a first aider in every home in Wales.

The division opens its doors on Thursday 6th October at the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service HQ, Llantrisant. It will welcome young people between the ages of 5-18 and adults from 18+.

St John Wales provides many opportunities and development programmes for people of all ages. The programmes help teach vital lifesaving first aid skills, provide a place to create friendships and opportunities for lots of exciting new challenges.

St John Wales is a major youth organisation. Over half of our 4,000 volunteers are under the age of 18. Individuals can sign up to be a Badger from age 5 or a Cadet from age 10. Many of our younger members move on to become adult members and Youth Leaders, playing a crucial role in the development of young people in the local community.

There are also many opportunities for Adult volunteers from age 18+. Operational members can start as first aiders and move into more enhanced roles such as Ambulance crew. Or you can be a Non Operational member and be part of the vital support team which help keep divisions operational, such as looking after the books or promoting events on social media.

Paul Wiggins, Mid Glamorgan Recruitment and Retention Officer commented: “This is a really exciting time for us in Mid Glamorgan as we start up a new division in the Llantrisant area. There are so many different roles and activities that can be undertaken regardless of whether you are young or old.”

Anyone interested in joining the Llantrisant division can call 029 2044 9639 or sign up for more information at https://sjaw.org.uk/register/.
