Everyday Heroes awards

Every day, St John Ambulance is saving lives and supporting your communities. Yet despite our efforts, we know there are still too many similar situations happening where first aid response is missing. The outcomes are not so positive. We need the public's support to do more across the country and create many more Everyday Heroes.


The Everyday Heroes awards 2019 showcased the incredible impact that St John Ambulance has in society. This is through the actions of our everyday heroes in local communities, workplaces, and through young people.

The awards are split into four categories:

  • Community Heroes
  • Young Heroes
  • Workplace Heroes
  • Volunteer Heroes

Our Volunteer of the Year Award is included within the Volunteers Heroes category.

The Everyday Heroes awards took place on Monday 7 October 2019 at the Hilton London Bankside.
