Vaccination programme

Vaccination programme

Join us as part of the largest vaccination programme in NHS history!

Our volunteers are part of a team that helps people through the whole vaccination process, from arrival to discharge. This might mean providing support to vaccinators, caring for people before and after they have the injection, or even administering the COVID-19 vaccine, after all the necessary training.

St John Ambulance is providing full training and asking that volunteers give at least two eight-hour shifts a month.

We're super excited about creating a healthier, safer and more resilient future. If you want to be a part of this, we'd love to have you on board.

Be sure to contact our Unit Manager, Louisa, if you end up applying, or have additional questions: Louisa.Lovatt@sja.org.uk

Fundraising Volunteers

As a volunteer fundraiser you can help us save lives, without ever picking up a first aid kit.

Youth Leaders

Our youth leaders lead and support young people as part of our Badgers and Cadets programmes in Coventry and Kenilworth.

Support roles

It takes more than first aid to keep everyone safe at events. Our first aiders rely on hundreds of volunteers making things happen behind the scenes. There are roles covering safeguarding, communications, logistics and more. Find out how you can make a difference!
