We are St John International

We’re improving first aid, community healthcare and support services around the world.
The charitable work is carried out by the St John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem and national St John organisations worldwide with volunteers and staff of over 350,000.

Also known as The Order of St John which was constituted as an Order of Chivalry of the British Crown in 1888 by Queen Victoria.

Her Majesty The Queen, the Sovereign Head of the Order, honours individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the work of St John, by awarding membership, at different grades, in the Order.
