The Order of Malta Ambulance Corps is a voluntary ambulance and first aid organisation with over 4,000 volunteers involved in over 80 units across the Island of Ireland. We are a major provider of excellence in first aid training, ambulance cover at large events, patient transport, community care, nursing services and assistance to other charities in most of the major cities and towns across the island of Ireland.
The Ambulance Corps is committed to providing caring services in a Christian, caring and non-discriminatory manner, to “Our Lords, the Poor and the Sick”.
Our presence at any events never implies support for any particular activity or agenda, our mission is to provide aid to any member of the public who requires it in times of an accident or injury. Our members attend events only in the interests of public health and safety and our presence at any event does not endorse any activity, agenda or point of view.
As one of the largest voluntary organisations in Ireland, we fundraise at a community and national level to support our local Ambulance Corps units and national community care initiatives. Order of Malta Ireland receives less than 10% of its income from government funding and relies heavily on the voluntary donations generated from local unit fundraising campaigns and providing first aid training services. All income from training and fundraising is reinvested to support the ongoing training of our volunteers and the provision of community care services across Ireland.
We operate over 165 ambulances, rapid response 4×4’s, mobile accident and emergency suites, support vehicles, medical bikes and command centres. Our headquarters also houses a command and control centre to coordinate vehicles and personnel in the event of a major incident.
