St John has a contract with the States of Guernsey – the Island’s government – to provide the ambulance service, which otherwise would need to be government supplied. The contract part pays the costs of running the road ambulance service only (approx. 70%).
The remaining costs for all other areas, such as the marine ambulance, first aid cover for public events, youth programmes etc are all funded from public donations, bequests and charges for services.
St John runs a Supporters Scheme to help cover these additional costs not included in the States of Guernsey grant, click on the links below to find out about these schemes:
