Every day, Australians are at risk of illness, injuries and life-threatening situations at home, in the workplace and the community.
We believe that every Australian should have access to responsive healthcare and wellbeing support when and where they need it.
We provide first aid education and training to over 50,000 students each year. Our training courses range from basic resuscitation, mental health and advanced first aid. We also provide community training and first aid programs such as our First Aid in Schools initiative.
Our health service offering is focused on supporting workplaces and communities in their endeavor to keep people safe, while staying true to our mission of saving lives through first aid. We provide comprehensive services including health staffing, paramedic services, first aid assessments, and the supply of first aid equipment. We are the largest and most comprehensive provider of first aid and medical services at events across the state.
We provide a range of medical services, facilities and people in response to community disasters – including extreme weather events. This can include harm minimisation and first aid, pre-hospital medical teams, advanced care medical centres, and mass casualty and incident management.
We receive donations and bequests from individuals and their families, and funding from a number of organisations, for which we are incredibly thankful. Our commercial activities cover our administrative costs, which means that every dollar donated to us directly supports our free community programs.
