St Andrew’s First Aid is Scotland’s only dedicated first aid charity and its mission is to provide everyone in the country with the highest standards in first aid skills, services and volunteering opportunities.

This is your opportunity to work with an inspiring and dedicated team as the new Senior Fundraiser – Trusts and Foundations.

“Freya undoubtedly saved Shaun’s life and ensured oxygen was getting to his brain which meant that after 2 days in a coma Shaun woke to no nerve or brain damage – something which we are extremely grateful for. Freya is an absolute hero in our eyes as she has given us the gift of our son’s future, which without her actions would not have existed.”
