Our ethical commitment

St John Ambulance Supplies is committed to providing excellent products and service in an ethical, responsible and socially beneficial way. We actively reduce our environmental impact by minimising our energy usage, waste production and product packaging, using PEFC certified paper sourced from well managed, sustainable forests. Not only do we care about providing world class first aid supplies; we care about the health of your community too.

Modern Slavery Act

St John Ambulance welcomes and supports the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”).

The aim of the Act is in line with our own values and we want to ensure that companies from which we purchase products and services are operating ethically and responsibly in order to combat slavery and trafficking activities, with the same standards applying to our own supply chain.

In accordance with the legislation, St John Ambulance will shortly publish our Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement (the "Statement"), and continue working with suppliers and stakeholders, to ensure our supply chain management is as effective as it can be at meeting the aims of the Act.

Charity

Being a St John Ambulance Supplies customer means you are also directly supporting the work of the Order of St John and its foundations St John Ambulance and the St John Eye Hospital.
St John Ambulance Supplies is a key part of St John Ambulance National Headquarters, and uniquely all income helps support the work of the organisation.

History

Originally known as 'The Stores Depot', we opened our doors for business on Wednesday 12 February 1879. From our first home in the historic St John’s Gate in Clerkenwell, London, we began supplying first aid equipment such as horse-drawn ambulances for hospitals, the Armed Forces, railway companies, the City of London Corporation and St John Ambulance.
Eight years later, with the inception in 1887 of the St John Ambulance Brigade; uniforms, insignia and many other items were added to ‘The Stores’ range.

Today, St John Ambulance Supplies is a B2B-B2C provider, specialising in the supply of first aid and health and safety equipment, training products, specialist equipment and facilities products, publications and clothing. Offering product solutions and services to people and organisations with personal, business or statutory interests in first aid, health and safety and training related markets.
Uniquely, St John Ambulance Supplies is the exclusive supplier of St John Ambulance Operational products and the only approved source of St John Ambulance clothing and branded merchandise. 
St John Ambulance Supplies has a multi-million pound turnover and serves a diverse customer base in the UK and overseas. Primarily a mail order operation and fully utilising up to date online trading systems.

St John Ambulance Supplies supports the work of the Order of St John, the Priory of England and the Islands and its foundations St John Ambulance and the St John Eye Hospital. In 1999 the Order of St John commemorated its Nonacentenary (900 years), and in 2004 St John Ambulance Supplies celebrated 125 years of trading.  While many of our products and services would be unrecognisable to our forbearers, our trademark commitment to service excellence remains undimished.
