About Organisation

In Greater Manchester, St John Ambulance offers a diverse array of youth programs tailored to different age groups.

For children aged 5-10, the Badger program provides an engaging platform where they can learn essential first aid skills and explore various fascinating topics. Badger Setts, operating across England, meet weekly for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Badgers participate in a range of fun activities and earn badges and certificates for completing subjects. They work towards the Super Badger Award by completing nine subjects, with Welcome Badger ensuring newcomers and their parents/carers are well-equipped for the journey. The program covers diverse subjects like first aid, communication skills, healthy living, and safety, all designed with Badgers in mind to facilitate their learning and development.

For youth aged 10-17, the Cadet units provide a platform to develop life-saving skills, with opportunities to apply these skills by assisting adult volunteers at events. Cadets can work towards the prestigious Grand Prior's Award, engaging in a variety of activities as part of the award process.

The NHS Cadets program is tailored for young people aged 14-18 (or up to 25 for those with disabilities and/or special educational needs) and focuses on preparing them for future healthcare careers. With Foundation and Advanced pathways catering to different age groups, participants learn practical skills and explore various roles within the NHS.

These programs collectively offer enriching experiences, skill development, and opportunities for personal growth and community contribution to young people across Greater Manchester.
