Young People

Information for Parents and Carers

Youth Uniform

Young People within St John Ambulance wear a uniform depending on their age range.

Badgers attending sett meetings wear:

  • A St John Ambulance polo shirt
  • A St John Ambulance sweatshirt
  • Baseball cap (optional)
  • Black trousers with black socks, or a black skirt with white socks or black tights
  • Black shoes

Badgers wear their full uniform for parades, community events, competitions, and other formal activities.

All Cadets wear a uniform which mirrors the image of our adult volunteers.

The Cadet uniform consists of:

  • Service delivery uniform shirt
  • Service delivery combat trousers
  • Black socks and shoes
  • Baseball cap (optional)

Award badges can be displayed on the brassard, worn on the left arm and a white t-shirt is worn under the shirt.

If you're not sure where to start, or could use a little help with uniform costs, fear not. Your youth leader can chat to you about options including financial assistance.

Financial Assistance

We are committed to removing barriers to participation and allow all young people the opportunity to become a Badger or Cadet, regardless of their parents' or carer's financial situation.

If you are concerned about any of the costs involved, please get in touch with your unit or sett manager as we may be able to offer financial assistance where it is needed.

Keeping Young People Safe

St John Ambulance Northern Ireland takes child protection extremely seriously and we have comprehensive procedures in place which apply to all activities within the organisation.

We ensure that Access NI checks are completed, references taken up and a declaration signed by every applicant before they are allowed to work with or supervise young people in St John Ambulance.

Our Safeguarding Policy covers a whole range of issues from risk assessments of youth activities to a number of training and awareness initiatives, combating bullying and much more. All members who work with young people must follow the procedures laid out in our Safeguarding Policy. The organisation will take action against anyone not following these principles.
