Description Aims and Objectives

The overall aim of the St. John Ambulance and Rescue Service is to help those whose lives are at risk or who are suffering from illness or injury to receive the highest standard of immediate care, within the island of Guernsey and the surrounding smaller islands.

Organisation and Management

The service is run by a charitable company, The St John Ambulance and Rescue Service, which is registered in Guernsey and limited by guarantee, and which exists to provide a non-profit-making service to the public.

The Service receives a grant from the States of Guernsey. The grant partially pays the costs of running the road ambulance service. The remaining costs, including the costs of the rescue services such as the Marine Ambulance Flying Christine III, Inshore Rescue Boats, Cliff Rescue Team and Hyperbaric Treatment Chamber, are derived from a combination of charges, income generation schemes, and donations and bequests.
