Some Associations have already had considerable support from the International Office over the years to assist in improving the very valuable work they do, and to reach more people in need. Now, St John wants to be able to do this for all Associations.

One of the most important tools for delivering the new strategy is the formation of three St John regions. Therefore, our Priories have been tasked to develop a regional model to provide additional support within these new regions. They are currently formed, and every Association will be part of one of them.

The regions are:

1 Americas incl. Caribbean

2 Europe, the Middle East and Africa

3 Asia and Oceania

Our Priories have been tasked to work together on establishing their respective regions. Supported by the International Secretariat, these regions will be the main hubs for collaboration amongst all St John organisations.

Each region will provide clarity about who is responsible for the delivery of each aspect of the strategy, and the regions will define their own ways forward in achieving the four aims 2021-2024, the overall strategy objectives, and the contribution to our global mission.

Support to Associations will come through the regions, and Associations are encouraged to engage with their regional leads.
