ST JOHN IS NEW ZEALAND'S MOST TRUSTED CHARITY
VICTORIA HAWKINS |
St John is proud to announce it has been voted the Most Trusted Charity in the highly competitive and respected Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brands Awards.
In a double endorsement, paramedics also came second in the Most Trusted Professions category of the annual awards, judged by New Zealanders.
“We are very humbled to receive such strong recognition of the vital emergency and community work our people perform by the very public we serve,” says Peter Bradley, St John Chief Executive.
“Not only do Kiwis place a high value on how we care for them in the community but they trust St John to use public contributions wisely to help treat and benefit them - a trust we never take for granted.”
St John provides emergency ambulance services to 90% of the country and is the largest primary healthcare provider in New Zealand.
It helps build resilient communities and supports people living independently for longer with services like Caring Caller, Health Shuttles, monitored medical alarms, first aid training and an extensive youth programme.
“Our ambulance officers treat and transport more than 415,000 patients a year and are in the unique position of going into people’s homes and places of work to help them at times of great need so to have earned the public’s trust and confidence in how we operate is fantastic,” says Mr Bradley.
